CardSpace in .Net Framework 3.0 required that sites deploying CardSpace always have a SSL certificate. This meant that every site that wanted to use CardSpace was forced to deploy an https site.

We realize that there are some sites like blogs which would like to use CardSpace, but consider the SSL requirement to be a deployment blocker.
