Blue Probe It’s the parting gift when you host an alien abduction

We implemented Web SSO with ADFS.  It works great, but the development experience was limited to W2K3.  This was a problem as development workstations were XP.  So we had 1 server on the side to test code against.  We pulled down the dll to the XP development boxes which allowed for compilation, but testing only on the W2K3 server.

A new framework for claims based identity is in beta from Microsoft.  It is code named Zermatt.  One of the interesting things from the developers perspective is that with Zermatt you can create a test Security Token Service (STS) to use during development.  I've even read that you can forgo the certificate requirement.  After all, during development, all we care about is the identity and the claims.  There is a white paper and download available.
