Liberty Alliance to Hold First All-Participant Meeting in September
All Associate, Affiliate, and Sponsor Level Members Invited to Discuss Progress and Provide Feedback Following Release of the Liberty Alliance's Version 1.0 Specifications for Federated Network Identity
The Liberty Alliance Project is a consortium of more than 95 commercial and non-commercial organizations formed to develop open, interoperable specifications for federated network identity. Since opening two new membership levels in May 2002, the Alliance has added nearly 50 new Associate and Affiliate level member organizations.
Today the Liberty Alliance announced the date, location and agenda for its first All-Participant Meeting, a forum in which Associate, Affiliate and Sponsor members can receive updates on the Alliance's progress and provide input on the activities of the Alliance and its specifications.
This meeting is open to Liberty Alliance members only. To become a member of the Liberty Alliance, please visit http://www.projectliberty.org. Your membership must be complete, including payment, by September 6 in order to register for this event.
September 19, 2002 (There will be a reception the evening of September 18 beginning at 6:00 p.m.)
The deadline to register for the All-Participant meeting is September 6, 2002. If you currently are not a Liberty Alliance member, to attend this meeting, you must complete your membership process and register for the meeting by September 6, 2002.
This meeting follows the recent release of the Liberty Alliance's version 1.0 specifications, which enable opt-in account linking and simplified sign-on for Internet transactions. The Alliance has already begun work on its next set of specifications that build and expand on version 1.0. These All-Participant meetings, to be held twice a year, offer non-Sponsor level members the ability to stay updated and provide feedback on the Alliance's work prior to the public release of its specifications.
