Microsoft to flash Windows ID cards

Microsoft is getting ready to provide an early peek at new Windows software that aims to help consumers deal with the plethora of Internet logins.

The Redmond, Wash.-based software giant plans to release a technical preview of the software, code-named InfoCard, by the end of May, Microsoft said. It will also include other technologies designed to make using digital identities easier and safer, Microsoft's senior executive in charge of security, Mike Nash, said Tuesday.

The release is for software developers, who will be asked to give Microsoft feedback on the technology, Nash said during his monthly security Webcast. In addition to InfoCard, Microsoft is also planning preview releases of technologies that it is pitching to enable the various identity systems used on the Internet to work together, he said.
