The secure and appropriate exchange of identity-related information between users and applications and service providers (both internal and external) is the basis of providing deeper and richer functionality for service oriented architecture. Sensitive identity-related data such as addresses, social security numbers, bank account numbers and employment details are increasingly the target of legal, regulatory and enterprise policy, such as the European Data Protection Initiative, Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI Security standard and Gramm-Leach-Bliley. The Id Governance initiative assists entities managing identity data with increased transparency and demonstrable compliance with respect to policies for identity-related data. It would allow corporations to answer questions such as: Under what conditions may user social security numbers be accessed by applications? Which applications had access to customer account numbers on January 27, 2007?

The market requirements document (MRD) for Identity Governance, defining these needs as well as other use cases, has been recently completed by the Liberty Alliance and development of code is underway in two places: and in the Technology Expert Group (TEG) within Liberty. In this webcast, the two project leads, Prateek Mishra and Phil Hunt, and Liberty's Executive Director, Brett McDowell, will discuss what Identity Governance is, the use cases it addresses and how it applies to you as an individual as well as enterprises working to protect your privacy.
