Programming Hands

In 2010 I was less focussed on programming articles on the blog than previous years, still I have managed to create some interesting articles with code in 2010. This is an overview of the activity:

VeriSign PIP Browser Certificate workaround (PIN Request) #identity #openid

leave a comment »

VeriSign – Personal Identity Portal is a OpenID provider with multiple factor identification: Password +

  • Mobile Credential (phone or mail PIN)
  • Account Information Card (can be used by applications such as Microsoft CardSpace)
  • VeriSign browser certificate
  • VeriSign Identity Protection (VIP) Credential (Physical Token)

As I have a browser certificate linked to my old browser and couldn’t login with my current browser I had to figure out a workaround when I don’t have the browser certificate: PIN Request. On the page that does the browser certificate request there is a hidden link to get a PIN send by mail or mobile, which you can find here.

Hope that helps you.

OpenID Implementations

with 2 comments

I have always loved Identity Management, and like Access Management. I’m a little funny, I like to be identified and want my identity to be linked on different sites. Which is why I like as an identity management system, I also like the possibility of limiting the exchange of personal information to the site to are identifying yourself too. Some may require a mail address, others may only need to verify that you are authenticated to the other site. allows commentary to be added when using an external authentication source, but does not allow blogging without your identity.

My personal favourites are VeriSign Personal Identity Provider – it has a Firefox add-on “VeriSign’s OpenID SeatBelt” – and – it allows attaching external links to your identity. You can examine many more of the implementations on the official site.
