Microsoft has quietly been rejigging its identity access group by shunting some of its key engineers out of the way in favour of fresh blood at Redmond's cryptography division, The Register has learned.

They may claim to hire the best and brightest, their produce doesn't show it, never has, never will. So it's not unexpected. But a shame nonetheless.
The best they can do is spin it out again. In fact, they should've spun their various divisions out at least a decade before that failure of an antitrust investigation. Have each division stand on its own legs and get rid of the "everything must be drowned in windows sauce!" mindset. No secret backdoors, undocumented APIs, whatnots and other things. They've bred in weakness, as well as alienated most of the rest of the brightest tinkerers and innovators. That has to have cut in their influx quality. And yet again it's blocking innovation and widespread uptake of technologies I can already see we'll only need more come the shiny bright future of advancing automation.
So before there were two solutions, an incomplete Microsoft one and an incomplete U-Prove one. Now, there will be none, as U-Prove will now never be able to deliver anything.
