9:15 – 9:45 The role of Identity within the Mobile Community

Liberty Alliance standards provide a normalized framework that can be used in many ways, including to implement high-value, identity-aware functionality on the network. In this session, Mr. Ar Foll will review some of the core functionality, including Attribute Exchange, Social Networking, Delegation, and Roaming, that developers can use to achieve new, highly productive offerings in the mobile community.

– Fulup Ar Foll, Sun Microsystems

Liberty Alliance engaged with Telecompetition, a research firm, in 2006 to study the impact of identity management and Web services in the telecommunications sector. This presentation will provide an overview summary of the findings, both quantitative and qualitative, and the strong market opportunities that exist for telecommunications organizations that are smart about identity-based solutions. Attendees will receive a free copy of the extensive research study.

10:15 – 10:45 Fidelity Project: A Multi-Organization, Multi-Region Case Study

Fidelity Project: A Multi-Organization, Multi-Region Case Study

Perhaps one of the most fascinating projects in the identity space in 2006 was the work done by the Fidelity project, a consortium of leading European mobile operators, industry and research organizations, exploring the viability of federated and Identity Web services solutions. The Fidelity project explored the use cases, the models and the business drivers, as well as the policy and legal agreements that must exist, in order to implement identity-based solutions. The Fidelity project addressed the implementation of multiple Circles of Trust, demonstrating the interoperability between them, and showing that local identity federations can be extended on to pan-European level. The proof-of-concept tests and demonstrations included mobile, fixed and Internet scenarios, and showed that the interoperability in a multi-vendor environments between multiple Circles of Trust can be achieved using the Liberty Alliance standards.

12:00 – 12:30 Identity federation in the eGovernment field, including a real example like the ePrescription project

Identity federation is seen as a key building block in eGovernment services, whereas domestic or cross-border transactions are involved. The current scenarios are characterized for diversity and heterogeneous identificationd and authentication solutions, ranging from low security identifiers for information services to high security identification and electronic signature services for interorganizational public procedures. The Liberty Alliance Project standards will help in establishing trust management models and policies, leveraging on the current citizen identification services and interconnecting governmental communities and service sin an interoperable way. The federated authentication and signature scheme underlying the electronic prescription service will be presented.
