The Liberty Alliance has gained wide acceptance across many industries from around the globe. This acceptance is particularly well represented in the mobile space, where Liberty is recognized as the de facto standard for identity services. This support is not surprising given the strong business case that Liberty offers to mobile providers wishing to provide Liberty-defined identity services, either to service providers and/or SIM services to other identity providers. Liberty specifications not only immediately benefit access control and data services (i.e. remote payment, geolocation) for mobile operators, but also offer an improved identity solution at the right cost, benefiting the entire mobile ecosystem.
