with the moderators permission, I am hoping this note can be distributed
to the SMAUG member's list. Thanks, Russ DeVeau




On January 24th, at the Palo Alto Crowne Plaza Hotel, Liberty Alliance
will hold an informational event featuring tracks focusing on federated
identity management from both a developer (including Java and Linux) and
business perspective. The Liberty Alliance Project is the only global
organization working to advance federated identity management
specifications and identity-based Web services using open standards.

This free event will provide developers, system integrators and
businesses with information about how open federated identity management
solutions are helping enterprises address a wide range of B2B, B2E, B2C
and end-user identity management, privacy and security issues. There
will be interactive demonstrations of Liberty Alliance specifications at
work by many Liberty Alliance members including, AOL, General Motors,
Nokia, Vodafone, Neustar and Novell. These Liberty Alliance members, as
well as members of the Liberty Alliance board, will be available to
discuss how open federated identity management specifications are
benefiting developers and businesses today. 

The event runs from 11:30am-4:30pm and begins with a buffet lunch and
key note address by Donal O'Shea, executive director of the Liberty
Alliance. Developers and businesses interested in attending can register
online at

We hope to see SMAUG members on the 24th. Get in touch at any time if
you have questions. In the meantime, a one-page information sheet is
available to provide more details. Please let me know if I can send this
sheet to any interested members.
