Single Location for Authentication

Microsoft is working on a product, code-named InfoCard, that will allow you to keep all of your logins in a single location, managed by you. This is different from their Passport service, in which Microsoft held that information. InfoCard will:
  • hold payment authorization
  • hold login information for a variety of web sites
At this point, this software is being provided to software developers only. No timeline on when it will be ready for the public. [from CNET]
