Many large companies develop Web-based applications to support their business practices. Such applications often require user login and authentication leading to repeated requests for such information. This article descriptionbes the process of creating an organizational digital persona based on a users identity in a directory service and discusses how the directory service can be used to control, create and maintain a Web-based digital persona. A prototype system is descriptionbed. The methods and products used in this development are based on Microsoft�s Web services. However, the protocols used to design the system are universal and can therefore be adopted for any Web platform.
