Forwarded from: Jason To: cryptography () wasabisystems com Cc: InfoSec News In a vain hope of getting some real talk on digital identity without all the ____ANTI MS _____ rhetoric please be aware its not just hailstorm / passport that "threatens digital identity" If it really does "threaten digital identity" To comment directly : "What is the difference? If Microsoft knows everything about everyone--and the information being collected by Passport and My Services make that look quite likely--the company could still be constrained in how it uses that information by laws or corporate privacy policies. That presupposes, however, that Microsoft is actually in control of the information it has collected." As apposed to say VISA/MasterCard/Switch/American Express/ et. al ? We seem to trust these?
