Showcasing How Users Can Control their Identity Online, Industry&aposs Largest Identity Interoperability Demonstration Scheduled for RSA 2008

SAN FRANCISCO, April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- (RSA Conference 2008) -- Open Source Identity Systems (OSIS) will conduct the largest user-centric identity interoperability test and demonstration at the 2008 RSA Conference, April 7-11 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The 33 member organizations and 24 projects of OSIS will showcase network interoperability between identity providers, card selectors, browsers and Web sites, demonstrating practical uses for user-centric identity technology, including how users can "click-in" to Web sites via self-issued and managed Information Cards and OpenIDs.
