As speculated in my previous post, Wave Systems posted a follow-on press release on their collaboration in the Open Identity Initiative for federal government.
As the press release points out:
[W]ith open access comes the need for greater security and privacy. Wave Systems is developing the ability to tie open identity technology into the trusted computing infrastructure. This will provide the basis for stronger security and privacy, and would pave the way for a whole new class of trusted applications.
A successful completion of this trial, not just technologically but also in the evaluation by the average citizen, could see a major boost for the TPM. Wave Systems already have a strong baseline product for exploiting TPM functionality, so I’m really looking forward to see what comes out of all of this.
