Windows CardSpace, formerly known by its codename InfoCard, is a framework developed by Microsoft which securely stores Digital identities of a person, and provides a unified interface for choosing the identity for a particular transaction, such as logging in to a website. Windows CardSpace is a central part of Microsoft's effort to create an Identity Metasystem, or a unified, secure and interoperable identity layer for the Internet.

Information Card (iCard) are the generic name technically just for the client-side technology, but Ldapwiki is using the term generically to refer to CardSpace.
