Liberty Alliance is about solving identity issues, so naturally identity theft prevention is of interest to our membership. Recognizing that the online identity theft problem is too big and growing too quickly to be solved by one vendor or one initiative, our special interest group is designed to serve as a hub for the global effort against identity theft and is attacking issues from multiple perspectives in a collaborative, open, and vendor neutral environment. We believe that when the industry works together, the majority of online identity theft issues will be solved faster and on a broader scale. This public group holds regular public and private workshops, webcasts, produces whitepapers and serves as an expert resource for other groups, both within and outside of the Liberty Alliance.

Liberty Whitepaper on Liberty Protocol and Identity Theft – Feb 20, 2004  

This paper, written by the Identity Theft Prevention Special Interest Group of the Liberty Alliance, clearly explains how a cross-organizational and vendor-neutral method of approaching the challenge of identity theft can work where piecemeal approaches will not. It includes a detailed identity theft matrix that explores the various types of identity theft and possible mitigating strategies, as well as an identity theft lifecycle that presents the various stages of the identity theft problem.
