Description from Services:
Securely enables the creation, management, and disclosure of digital identities.

If this is causing issues outside of forcing your firewall to choose access to the local machine (127.0.0.1) you can disable it.

You might notice this service often if you switch between users on different websites like hotmail, msn, bing, yahoo, google etc.

I believe it attempts to remember your identities so if you have more than one Hotmail account you might find it updating the information it stores.

You can disable it by changing the start up type to disabled.
By default it should be on Manual start.
