About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Microsoft offers personal digital ID cards

What will make InfoCard appeal to the IT community is that it actually delivers on a long awaited promise, federated security. It doesn't matter who issues the InfoCard or what operating system or software they use. The whole process is standards driven and vendor neutral. After years of false starts, this looks like it will deliver something that has eluded the IT industry so far.

So what is Microsoft adding to InfoCard under its CardSpace banner?

Whenever the user is working with an InfoCard they will find themselves put into a separate desktop and using a very restricted account. You will not be able to move between your normal desktop and the CardSpace environment. This will make it exceptionally hard for hackers to try and screen grab or harvest passwords using keystroke logging software.

This really does have the ability to improve security and Microsoft is already talking to a number of online retailers about adding InfoCard support to their web sites.
