MS Passports vs. Liberty Alliance

Microsoft Passports, ein System das Zugangs- und Kundendaten zentral speichert und nach einmaliger Anmeldung Zugang zu beteiligten Websites verschafft, wird eingestellt. In Alternative des offenen Standards der Liberty Alliance gelang es Microsoft nicht genügend Unternehmen zu finden, die bereit waren ihre Kundendaten Dritten zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Microsoft revokes Passport service

Microsoft's decision to shut down its Passport partner program comes after one of its largest allies - eBay - said it would retire Passport in January and use its own service instead.

This move by Microsoft to give up on being a type of internet services middleman can be seen as a major victory for the rival Liberty Alliance, which is comprised of serious tech heavyweights such as IBM, Sun Microsystems, HP and Nokia.

[ ... ]

Passport allowed Microsoft to keep track of a wide range of customer information, including credit card numbers. It could then pass on this information to partners for use in their own internet services. The process was meant to make life easier on consumers, as they only had to remember one user name and password to log on to a wide variety of web sites and services.

Passport also made privacy advocates nervous. Microsoft suffered one of its most embarrassing moments in May of 2003 when it revealed that all 200m Passport users could have their private information made public because of a security hole in its service.
