Q&A: Microsoft's Kim Cameron Wins 'Balancing Innovation and Reality' Award for Contributions to Digital Identity

Q&A: Microsoft's Kim Cameron Wins 'Balancing Innovation and Reality' Award for Contributions to Digital Identity: "Microsoft's chief architect of identity and access outlines his vision for the 'Laws of Identity,' as well as the work the identity management community is doing to solve today's toughest digital identity problems.

Microsoft Passport is one of the things that started my research into what I call the "Laws of Identity." Passport, on one hand, has been phenomenally successful, with 1 billion authentications per day and 250 million people using it to log in to MSN Hotmail and other Microsoft properties. Microsoft continues to invest in Passport for the purpose of providing the logon services for MSN, Hotmail and other Microsoft properties. On the other hand, we have learned from Passport and other approaches in the industry that a single provider or a single technology can't meet the needs of all customers. "
