 PostPost subject: Windows Live ID Client 1.0 SDK (Alpha Release)        Posted: Mon Apr 16, 2007 8:43 pm 
Quoted from MS Connect
We are excited to introduce the alpha version of Windows Live ID for client applications!

The Windows Live ID Client 1.0 SDK provides a managed API for Windows Live sign-in authentication. Included in the release is a sample application with its source code, so that you can build your own client applications.

    Benefits of the Windows Live ID authentication service
  • No need to worry about the technical details of authentication! The Windows Live ID authentication service manages this process for you.
  • Don’t bother worrying about how to store and retrieve user account information! The Windows Live ID service uses the same functionality as Messenger to cache the user name and/or password for use in subsequent user sign ins.
  • Forget about creating, storing, and maintaining user accounts! The Windows Live ID service hosts and manages the Web flows and account services to enable account sign up, credential viewing and updating, and profile management.
  • Gain hundreds of millions of potential users of your application! By enabling Windows Live accounts direct sign in to your application, anyone with a Windows Live ID can become a user of your product.


The SDK is available to everyone with a msn live account.
Could Microsoft be opening its sources a little bit too late? Google has been doing the same with google apps for quite some time, that is, the opening up of Google authentication process to the public allowing people to build apps that can sync with Google servers in real time. Seems like MS is trying to gain back developer's attention. Google, however, has been targetting corporate users through a paid licensing fee.
