Just over a year ago we launched the first* OpenID Provider that exclusively supported smart cards and other USB security devices. Last summer we added SAML login support for Google Apps & Salesforce.com. One of the groups of people that has been most interested in our OpenID provider has been device manufacturers: the companies that make and resell smart cards, biometric readers, and various other types of USB security devices.
TrustBearer OpenID gives these device providers a simple way to demonstrate the value of their devices to end users. It lets users login to useful online services with a very secure cryptographic hardware device. The one question that these customers might have is: Who is TrustBearer?
We are answering that question today by making it irrelevant! TrustBearer is now offering a service to create and host custom-branded OpenID & SAML Identity Provider to security device providers and resellers. This service includes,
- A custom URL (such as https://superCard.mySmartID.com)
- Custom graphics and theme for the site
- Custom application settings & links for OpenID & SAML sites that are relevant to their customers
We are charging a one-time set-up fee and a monthly fee to create and host this service. Please contact us if you are interested.
* I believe we were the first to launch an OpenID Provider that exclusively supported smart cards. C’mon, it made Slashdot.
