Explorer 7.0 to get new identity security

Microsoft is reported to be considering including its Infocard user authentication technology in the next version of Explorer. According to Microsoft sources quoted by Network World magazine, the software could now turn up in the major version 7.0 overhaul of the browser, due out next year. Infocard, currently in beta, is the codename for a browser-based system for keeping track of a userís password and user name identity as they move around websites. Connecting to an Infocard server should make it possible to visit multiple sites without having to log in repeatedly. - Techworld.com - Explorer 7.0 to get new identity security
