Configuring IIS7 to support Windows CardSpace sites

In this screencast, Rich Turner will walk you through the processes of configuring IIS7 on Windows Vista to enable a site to support Windows CardSpace:

Here is what is covered:
Configuring IIS7
Creating an SSL Certificate
Adding an HTTPS binding to the default website
Finding the cert's private key using PowerShell
Setting permissions on the private key (using ICACLS)
Adding the Simple Windows CardSpace demo site

This will hopefully make it a great deal easier for you to understand how to build dev/test/live rigs that can support Windows CardSpace.

Also check out the "Windows CardSpace Simple Demo Walkthrough", Rich Turner illustrated just how little code and effort is required to add Windows CardSpace support to an ASP.NET site.
