Some days I am amazed at how deeply the identity management concepts have penetrated into popular culture: “Mr Big Stuff, who do you think you are?” clearly relates to an authentication issue or authorization issue. “Won’t get fooled again” by the WHO is clearly making a reference to a Certificate Revocation List, now that I have revoked your certificate you won’t be authenticated again. One area where pop culture is still shockingly uninformed still need help is in asset protection.
On Tuesday Bob Muglia made a big announcement – ILM 2 Beta 3 has been released. While the beta install is only 64 bit on Microsoft Connect you can download the 32-bit Virtual PC. At the ILM 2 booth at Tech Ed the Microsoft ILM Product Group and I were handing them out like crazy. Thanks to Nima for inviting me to participate at the booth. Best session I went was by Candy Stark from MS IT.
