WSF-WS*-WSI

The question was

“How does Liberty ID-WSF 2.0 compare or relate to other web-service identity efforts such as WS-* or the WSI profiles”

– WSF stands for the Identity Web Service Framework, its a set of specifications defined by Liberty that together constitute the ‘plumbing’ for identity-based web services

– WS-* is a set of proposals and standards (driven primarily by IBM & MSFT but along with other companies) for various aspects of web services security.

– WS-I stands for the Web Services Interoperability Organization – a body that profiles various web service standards in order to optimize interoperability (by reducing the flexibility that typical exists in the base standards).
