The most important contribution to Internet security since cryptography

Lawrence Lessig, founder of Creative Commons and leading proponent of "free culture" recognizes the importance of InfoCard, a WinFX technology that is hardened against tampering and spoofing to protect the end user's digital identities and maintain end-user control. In a post in Wired, Lessig says it may be the "the most important contribution to Internet security since cryptography".

InfoCard builds off of the widely respected Laws Of Identity proposed by Kim Cameron.

For more information, look at the InfoCard page on the Windows Vista Developer Center.
