Secure Endpoints Inc. is the primary developer of Network Identity Manager (NetIdMgr). It allows end users to manage multiple network identities from within a single easy to use interface. Built upon the extensible Khimaira framework, NetIdMgr enables organizations to provide users with a single sign-on experience. A single Kerberos authentication can automatically derive credentials for a variety of other authentication mechanisms including AFS tokens and X.509 certificates. NetIdMgr also provides users with automatic credential renewal.
A COCOMO analysis of the Network Identity Manager source code has been performed by ohloh.net:

The KCA plug-in is bundled with a PKCS#11 module that exports certificates from the Windows Certificate Store to applications such as Mozilla's Firefox and Thunderbird.
