I’m a bit late with this one….Shamelessly copied from Axel’s blog [LINK]

Preliminary interoperability testing results of my Identity Provider [LINK] with other Relying Parties yield 5 Failures, 8 Working exchanges and 4 Not Applicables.
It’s a beautiful thing when the RP and IdP just "work". Checkout the results here [LINK].
For a semi-homegrown solution I’d say that’s not bad. Maybe instead of "trusting" someone with my valuable identity information, I can just be my OWN identity provider?

OSIS Interop testing has kicked off with the launch of the results Wiki [http://
As mentioned in an earlier post, my Cardspace Relying Party Test Harness[LINK] as well as my Identity Provider [LINK] are in the testing this year. I get a big kick out of seeing the interoperability work between my hacked-together test harness and the other implementations out there.
Results are being gathered in the following matrix and will likely be reviewed at RSA 2008 this year.
After some initial testing it seems my RP/IdP works reasonably …

Tonight I launched a simple CardSpace Managed Card Generator and Test Harness. It lets you generate a managed card, with whatever claims you’d like and then generate a test harness form for that card.
The card can then be used to obtain claims from a Simple Security Token Service. Lastly, these claims can be consumed and parsed out to complete the end to end process.
This might seem like a trivial exercise but I have not come across any other publicly available service that demonstrates the end to end flow …
