Very Cool!

As luck would have it, I also happen to be ready to release
a beta version of a Single-Login Client. I have designed it
in such a way to make future integration with IDSec
relatively easy. This is not a prototype or a reference
implementation, this is a commercial grade Windows
Application, with an easy professional installer. It's
called "Liberty Guardian".

Some Guardian Features:

-Only one password to remember. 
-Log into web sites with a mouse click. 
-Works on Windows XP,2000,Me,98,NT,95. 
-Works with Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator. 
-Automatically integrates with your default browser. 
-Secure. Uses 128 bit IDEA (International Data Encryption
Algorithm) and MD5 (RSA's MD5 cryptographic Message Digest)
to protect user's usernames and passwords. 
-Low impact install. No dlls or anything else is installed
in Windows system directories, eliminating conflicts. 
-Tamper Resistant Software. Malicious attempts to change
executables or dlls in the Guardian installation directory
causes internal integrity checks to fail and the program to
display an error and exit. 
-Compatible with most existing web based authentication
-Future versions will support emerging Virtual Identity
standards when the standards are ready. 
-It's portable, Mac and Linux ports are in the plans.

I'm eating my own dog food. It's saving me a huge amount of
time in not having to manually log into all the web sites
that I frequent, and I'm using more subscription based web
sites now because it's no longer a hassle.

Anybody interested in checking out the Guardian 1.0 beta
version should send me an e-mail.
