WHEN:

  Wednesday, July 6, 2005

BACKGROUND:

  Federated Identity Management allows individuals to use the same
  identification to sign on to the networks of more than one enterprise,
  in order to conduct transactions.

  Partners in such a system depend on each other to authenticate and
  vouch for their users, without needing to adopt the same tools for
  directory services, security, and authentication.

  The Liberty Alliance Project ( http://www.projectliberty.org/ ) is the
  only open body working to address the technical, business, and policy
  challenges surrounding identity and Web services.  The Alliance is made
  up of over 150 members representing a variety of industries from
  around the world, maintains an open membership policy, and
  collaborates with other standards bodies.

  LAP's specifications for FIM and Web services are built on open
  protcols, and are device- and platform-agnostic.
