JanRain Releases Code for Accepting Self-Issued InfoCards

Today we released an important piece of code to help enable web applications accept Microsoft Information Cards. It’s a Python library and PostgreSQL database interface that uses libxmlsec and OpenSSL. This code does not depend on any Web framework, and the database implementation should be easy to generalize. The library is available under a BSD license.

Though the library is only available in Python, it could be used as a reference implementation for those wanting to implement Information Card verification in other languages. The project is available here:
