Tuesday, 25 May 2004, 10:12 AM EST

The technology, which won't be available until the software giant releases Windows Server 2003 R2 in the second half of 2005, will interoperate with other companies' identity management software, said Michael Stephenson, lead program manager for Windows Server 2003.
