WORKSHOP – IDENTITY FEDERATION & WEB SERVICES: HAPPENING TODAY – ENABLING TOMORROW

At RSA Conference, Esplanade 302, Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, USA

Open, secure, standards-based methods are needed for implementing identity management solutions that maintain user privacy and strengthen the security of internet transactions while at the same time making it easier for end-users to utilize federation and web-based services. Come learn about the Liberty Alliance protocols, and see how CA, HP, Intel, NTT Corporation, Ping Identity and RSA are successfully utilizing these proven standards to implement state-of-the-art identity management solutions that strengthen security, increase privacy and offer end users and deploying organizations new levels of simplicity. We’ll explore the range of offerings available through the standards-based “plumbing” that Liberty Federation and Liberty Web Services protocols have put in place, with presentations ranging from customer case studies to cutting-edge proof of concept demonstrations showing how to securely manage the life-cycle of identities.

The case studies will show that both federation and Web services initiatives are happening today and enabling tomorrow.
