Hello all,

Systinet announces the first release of WASP Card 0.9 alpha - an
authentication Web Service.

WASP Card acts as a single sign-on web service communicating over the SOAP
protocol. The service's interfaces are described in WSDL. One instance of
WASP Card creates a security domain of known identities. In this context,
any Web Service is able to check the identities of callers. Thus, by using
WASP Card, developers can orchestrate web services within a shared context
in a secure way. For authentication purposes, WASP Card requires only
HTTP(S) (no other proprietary libraries are required). So, it is possible to
call it from other (non-WASP) SOAP clients.

WASP Card will be more feature-rich in the close future.
