INITECH Goes Live with I-Services

INITECH is the first XDI.org-accredited i-broker to provide three i-services for their i-name customer — they just went live with SAML-based i-name Single Sign-On (i-SSO), Contact and Forwarding services.

You can see these services at work with their own i-name, @greenbutton. You can visit their contact page at http://xri.net/@greenbutton and see how contact requests are authenticated with either an i-name or email address, effectively eliminating spam (more on that subject in a future post).

Note that only SAML authentication is available currently, but OpenID authentication will be available by September. I-names will be the first digital address to support both SAML and OpenID authentication.
