Understanding and Implementing Liberty Alliance Specifications and Policy-Based Identity Assurance and Governance Frameworks Focus of Public Event
Liberty Alliance – Feb 4, 2008 – Liberty Alliance, the global identity consortium working to build a more trusted internet for consumers, governments and businesses worldwide, today announced a digital identity management implementation workshop taking place on March 10 from 9:30am – 5:30pm in Santa Clara, CA. This free public event is for developers, system integrators and technical, business and policy teams interested in understanding how to implement Liberty’s open identity specifications and policy-based governance and privacy frameworks to build and deploy secure and privacy-respecting identity systems.
The event features representatives from organizations deploying SAML 2.0 Liberty Federation and Liberty Web Services who will review deployment use cases and a step-by-step overview of how technology and policy issues have been addressed within the application. The workshop will include functionality overviews of Liberty’s open identity specifications, a session on the soon-to-be released open source code from openLiberty.org and updates on the policy-based Liberty Identity Governance Framework (IGF) and the Liberty Identity Assurance Framework (IAF). The event will showcase Liberty specifications used in a Software as a Service (SaaS) deployment and will include the industry’s first Data Portability and Identity face-to-face meeting.
“Organizations need to address technology, business and privacy issues if they are to more easily build and deploy successful digital identity management solutions,” said Brett McDowell, executive director, Liberty Alliance. “The March 10 workshop will provide participants with the technology and policy overviews they need to jump-start the process of building identity dependent applications that can interoperate with the growing number of Liberty deployments worldwide.”
