Another Firefox Cardspace Extension

Check out this cool extension for Firefox by Kevin Miller


It basically wraps the native CardSpace implementation on Windows so you can use it from Firefox. Very robust looking parsing card detection, and the ability to implement an XPCOM interface to plugin other selectors:

IIdentitySelector..GetBrowserToken(issuer , recipientURL, requiredClaims ,data.optionalClaims , tokenType, privacyPolicy, privacyPolicyVersion , serverCert );

The selector implementation can be determined by the user's preferences, so it should be very simple to adapt the xmldap selector or other cross platform implementations to this model and let user's choose their selector.

Nice work Kevin!
