Microsoft Acquires Privacy Vendor

Microsoft says its recent acquisition of privacy vendor Credentica is a step toward helping better protect the privacy of users. Credentica's U-Prove technology enables users to reveal only minimal information about themselves while online. During an interview with Network World, Microsoft Identity Architect Kim Cameron said the technology will become part of the base identity infrastructure the company offers, adding that "Good privacy practices will become one of the norms of e-commerce."
