Windows Live ID revealed

Posted by David Hunter at 11:27 PM ET.

Dare Obasanjo points to the inaugural post in the Windows Live ID weblog by Lead Program Manager Trevin Chow which clarifies the objectives of Live ID quite succinctly:

Windows Live ID is the upgrade/replacement for the Microsoft Passport service and is the identity and authentication gateway service for cross-device access to Microsoft online services, such as Windows Live, MSN, Office Live and Xbox Live. Is this the authentication service for the world? No :-) It’s primarily designed for use with Microsoft online services and by Microsoft-affiliated close partners who integrate with Windows Live services to offer combined innovations to our mutual customers. We will continue to support the Passport user base of 300+ Million accounts and seamlessly upgrade these accounts to Windows Live IDs. Partners who have already implemented Passport are already compatible with Windows Live ID.
