Tools Vendor Readies Passport for Linux

"A small software development company this week disclosed that it will soon offer prebuilt versions of Microsoft's Passport Internet-based authentication technology for the Unix and Linux operating systems.

The news follows Microsoft's announcement Thursday that it will share some of the source code for its single sign-on service. The software giant said it would make available in November the code to the Passport Manager--software that links a Web site or a software application to Microsoft's Passport service, which allows users to log on to multiple Web-applications using a single password."
