Description of infocard.exe from Microsoft
If you're like many people, you carry identification—a passport, drivers license, credit card, or an employee or student ID card. Merchants and financial institutions use identification to verify your identity to help protect you from theft and fraud. Sometime in the not-so-distant-future, you’ll use similar identification in the online world. Information Cards are personal identification that you can use on a website in a similar manner to the way that you use your current identification today.
