“Geneva” is a Microsoft next generation identity and access management platform built on Active Directory directory services. It is an open platform that provides simplified access and single sign-on for on-premises and cloud-based applications in the enterprise, across organizations, and on the Web.
With the release of CardSpace Geneva Beta 2 comes a set of samples specifically targeted towards CardSpace developers.
The samples pack covers three broad areas:
- A series of incremental web page samples showing how to invoke CardSpace, culminating in a sample that shows error handling and progress spinners for long-running operations like policy and token retrieval.
- A sample that shows using Geneva Framework’s WSFederationAuthenticationModule to protect a web site with CardSpace credentials.
- A sample for VC++ programmers that demonstrates CardSpace’s API for native programs. If you have wanted to include the CardTile in your own program or browser extension, this is for you.
