Re: [higgins-dev] Status of CardSpace i-card providers

The following three projects were checked into Eclipse CVS:
org.eclipse.higgins.icard.provider.cardspace.managed - managed card provider
org.eclipse.higgins.icard.provider.cardspace.personal - personal card provider
org.eclipse.higgins.icard.provider.cardspace.common  -  common library shared by both managed and personal providers.
Unfortunately these projects are not buildable because of problems with new IdAS.

Subject: [higgins-dev] Status of CardSpace i-card providers

Sergey Lyakhov (slyakhov@xxxxxxxxxxxxx) is developing two i-card providers (see rows B and C here [1]) to provide CardSpace interoperability. The first is called ?CMIP? (see [2]) for short. The second is called "CPIP" (see [3]) for short.




- basic code will be checked in on 4/4




- basic code will be checked in on 4/4

- due to recent "update-related" changes in IdAS metadata can no longer be updated so any update operations do not currently work




- both share some common code for .crds card backup/restore

- to do this 256 bit crypto is required

- either the IBM or SUN JVMs require export licenses to be acquired and installed to do 256 bit crypto. (128 bit is the legal limit)

- we are in the process of removing a dependency on http://www.bouncycastle.org library as this cannot be redistributed from Eclipse.
