This article describes requirements and challenges of cross-platform multi-touch software engineering, and presents the open source framework Multi-Touch for Java (MT4j) as a solution. MT4j is designed for rapid development of graphically rich applications on a variety of contemporary hardware, from common PCs and notebooks to large-scale ambient displays,(More)
In this work, we discuss the diffusion of federated identity management. We base our research on Roger'sdiffusion of innovation theory,and derive generic factors influencing the diffusion of federated identity management solutions. To validate our model and investigate specific contributions of parameters in specific usage scenarios, we investigate market(More)

Electronic services such as virtual communities or electronic commerce demand user authentication. Several more or less successful federated identity management systems have emerged to support authentication across diverse service domains in recent years. In this paper, we explore the determinants for success and failure of such systems with a focus on(More)
