Milestone 0.4 (done 4/13/06)


Higgins logo 76Wx100H.jpg


The focus of this milestone is: Refining the architectural model (including data model), integrating ECF collab with Higgins, and preparing for the following demonstrations:

  • At IIW2006 May 1-3 (done): InfoCard protocol support: Use a Firefox browser equipped with HBX (and supported by a Higgins instance) to sign in to a target website (e.g. a prototypical e-commerce site) whose sign-in page that uses the HTML tags described by Microsoft's recently released web interoperability documentation. Details: Higgins InfoCard Interop Demo
  • At Berkman IdMashUp June 19th: RSS-P protocol support: Higgins-powered "i-card broker" web service that allows users to create/edit both anonymous and identifying "iCards" (a Digital Subject within a Contexts), and (assuming HBX installed on Firefox) the ability to "project" one or more of these identities onto (a) two different areas within a prototype e-commerce site created by Best Buy and MyVirtualModel and (b) 2-3 (more?) websites created for the conference whose page content dynamically customizes based on the visitor's profile. The identity profile data is made available to the relying sites from the PIP service.
  • At Berkman IdMashUp June 19th: Demonstration by IBM of integration of an STS within i-card broker and HBX to sign in to an InfoCard-enabled relying website.
