here is another variety, this one based on minting certs using the website as the user interface (rather than enterprise management tools). It suits web users.
 http://tinyurl.com/cdv88og  Anyone could run one of these systems publicly, given the resources. W3C could easily do so, as a contribution to the webid project.From: home_pw@msn.com

Subject: using windows to mint web id credentials,

Write of how to make Windows support the identiyt crednetial (cert issuing) features of webid world.
It's in comic strip format: mostly pictures with some narrative.
The result allows one to test the webid validation protocol, since it mints .p12 files consumed by the typical browser.
More importantly, its management featurescreates communities with identity credentials, enabled to work with access controls systems of any foaf protocol (presumaing it bundles then webid validation protocol).
Other features of the product are not armed (such as the web service interface, enabling third parties to build user interfaces to the enrollment/minting features). folks doing commercializatioin can investigate those interfaces, and the ACLs necesary to enable an public interface. Its not hard.
You can download VMs with 90 day licenses of the required microsoft product, from Microsoft. Its fun to play with enterprise class design, in an web context. The two contexts are evidently merging, quickly.
