Try out CardSpace now!

Recently we launched the Windows CardSpace Sandbox.   The Sandbox (http://sandbox.netfx3.com) is area within the NetFx3.com site where users can try out Windows CardSpace from within their browser.   The Sandbox allows developers can see how Windows CardSpace has been integrated into a web site that also supports usernames and passwords.  The site allows users to:

• Create a user account using a username and password or using a self-issued Information Card
• Link one or more Information Cards with a user account
• Sign-in to the site using their username and password or an Information Card that you have linked with your account

Ready to try Windows CardSpace now?   Make sure you have Internet Explorer 7.0 Beta 3 and the .NET Framework 3.0 July CTP installed, and then you can create a new user account in the site using a self-issued Information Card.   For more details and links to install these components, please follow these simple step-by-step instructions.   Also, please read the disclaimers and known issues if you have any problems.

We plan to continue to update the sandbox as new builds of the .NET Framework 3.0 are released.  We will also make the code for the CardSpace integration available to the community in the near future.
