You can read more information over here (under "Overview"):
There is also an article over here on the IPS feature (when NIS 2009 was released):
Finally, I copied the below from the Norton Help Center, which you can access via your Norton product:
About Identity Safe
Identity Safe helps you manage your identities and provide additional security while you perform online transactions.
The following features in Identity Safe provide secure storage of your sensitive information:
Stores login information, such as your online bank account, email user ID, or password
Stores your personal information, such as addresses, date of birth, and credit card information
Stores the details, such as passport numbers and social security numbers
In addition to being a depository of sensitive information, Identity Safe provides the following features:
Antiphishing also helps to protect you from malicious Web sites when you conduct online transactions.
By saving your data with a local profile, you can prevent your sensitive Identity Safe data on your PC from being misused. A local profile is specific to each of the Windows User Accounts present on your PC.
By saving your data using a portable profile, you can access your sensitive Identity Safe data from any PC that has Norton Internet Security installed. A portable profile is a profile that you save on an external drive.
Norton Internet Security adds the Norton Toolbar to Internet Explorer and Firefox. The Norton Toolbar has the following components:
You can use the Norton menu to access Web settings and other settings.
You can use Norton Safe Search to search the Internet. Norton Internet Security uses the Ask search engine to display the search results.
By default, the Norton Safe Search box is hidden. After you install Norton Internet Security and open Internet Explorer or Firefox for the first time, an alert message is displayed. The alert message prompts you to enable Norton Safe Search. You can choose to enable or disable Norton Safe Search.
You can click the Norton Site Safety indicator to obtain more information about the site safety evaluation.
You can use the Cards & Logins menu to make online decisions about Web page logins.
When you have cards or logins in Identity Safe, the Cards & Logins menu displays the list of cards and logins.
If you turn off Identity Safe, you cannot access your logins and Identity Safe features from the Norton Toolbar.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we are now ready for take-off. We would like to remind you that smoking and flaming are prohibited on all boards of this forum. We wish you an enjoyable flight with Norton Airlines.
