WORKSHOP – UNDERSTANDING LIBERTY’S IDENTITY TECHNOLOGY STANDARDS: BUILT FOR TODAY, PAVING WAY TO TOMORROW

The Meeting Room, Sun Microsystems Santa Clara, CA 95050, USA

Strong open standards are driven by real customer and business needs that recognize marketplace growth is best achieved through interoperability. The Liberty Alliance was formed in Sept. 2001 to address these needs in the identity space, recognizing at the core of every transaction—across a variety of devices—identity information is shared: how much and how securely remains a key focus as identity web services now become more pervasive.This workshop will provide an update on Liberty Alliance technology standards, many just released in the last several months, as well as case study presentations by deployers who are utilizing Liberty standards to realize new business opportunities and an update on available open source kits. We’ll discuss the use cases for implementing Liberty’s standards and gains that can be realized through implementation, providing a clear view on where to start, what to implement first, and what prerequisites need to be in place.
This workshop will blend traditional presentations with interactive birds—of-a-feather (BOF) discussions, providing excellent opportunities for technical managers and developers as well as business line managers to interact, network and understand and impact the Liberty standards landscape. We also encourage the formation of spontaneous BOF sessions as you network among your peers and discover common interests.
