Geneva Framework is now Windows Identity Foundation

I am now in the process of watching Scott Hanselman interview Vittorio Bertocci and Stuart Kwan on Channel Line Live (@chlive9 on twitter). They are discussion the new Windows Identity Foundation. This was formerly known as the Geneva Framework.

Essentially, the “Foundation” is used for claims based access, which we also see termed, in MS docs, as federated identity (an identity that goes across multiple applications or even organizations).

There are two pieces you can add to the Foundation for your applications: Active Directory Federated Services 2.0 and Windows CardSpace 2.0. The first is more for internal federation of identity, while the later is a more public federated model (customers, etc).

And the rollout continues. :-0

Peace and Grace,
