TrustBearer OpenID selected as HealthVault provider

As a conference last week, it was announced that TrustBearer OpenID will be one of two OpenID providers for the Microsoft HealthVault platform:

TrustBearer Labs’ OpenID service will allow HealthVault users to login securely to their account using multi-factor hardware authentication devices, such as smart cards, biometric readers, or security-enhanced mobile phones. The service uses challenge-response authentication to prevent common phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks, which are a growing concern of online service providers.

“Our objective is to give our customers choice and make their web experience easier, while helping them safeguard their privacy,” said George Scriban, senior product manager, Health Solutions Group, Microsoft. “We’re happy to be working with TrustBearer to give HealthVault users the option of using OpenID with their HealthVault account.”
