Information Cards

Information cards provide visual representations of one or more claims (asserted identity attributes) that can be used for registration, authentication and other purposes. Information cards were promoted predominantly by Microsoft, but with support from other vendors. Claims-based identity and information cards were being supported by Microsoft through a set of related product components, through the Eclipse Foundation’s Higgins initiative, and in varying degrees by access management vendors.Claims-based identity concepts and supporting standards have been codified in the OASIS Identity Metasystem Interoperability standard.
