Cardspace: some changes with the RC1 wave

Cardspace: some changes with the RC1 wave

  • Comments 2

Hello there! I'm totally drowning in stuff to do these days, but this post is quick to write and can potentially save you a lot of hassle :-)

In RC1 (.NET framework 3.0, IE7.0 and/or Vista: for once, we have all nicely aligned) we discontinued the namespace "http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2005/05/identity", substituted by "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity". That holds both for the claims in the self issued cards (s-i-c) and for the qname of the issuer associated to s-i-c. If you browse a pre-RC RP site from a RC1 machine, you may experience weird effects. For example, like the Identity Selector claiming that the website is asking for a managed card from the issuer "http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2005/05/identity/issuer/self", no longer recognized as the s-i-c special issuer. Note that often is not a good idea to explicitly ask for a specific issuer :-)
