The Liberty Alliance Project, a
global consortium for open federated identity and Web services
standards, announced that products from IBM, NEC, NTT and RSA
Security passed interoperability testing at Liberty's recent
conformance event. These companies successfully demonstrated that their
products meet interoperability standards for Liberty Federation and
join nearly seventy other identity products and solutions from multiple
vendors that have now passed Liberty interoperability testing.
Liberty Alliance holds regular conformance events at varying
locations around the world to test products for interoperability of
Liberty identity specifications. After participating in a five-day
testing event held in Tokyo earlier this month, IBM, NEC, NTT and RSA
Security have demonstrated interoperability of products and solutions
that incorporate Liberty Federation (Liberty ID-FF 1.2 and/or SAML 2.0)
"Liberty's Interoperable Program is about creating a global
ecosystem of identity solutions that have been proven to work together
in an open federated network environment," said Roger Sullivan, chair
of the Liberty Alliance conformance program and vice president of
business development for Oracle's Identity Management. "Since Liberty
launched the program in 2003, identity products that have passed
interoperability testing have been deployed extensively in a variety of
industries and vertical market segments worldwide."
Liberty Alliance is the only global identity organization with a
history of ensuring identity products from multiple vendors truly
interoperate. Implementations must interoperate with at least two other
vendor implementations through a series of tests designed to
exhaustively exercise specification features in a real-world deployment
setting. Symlabs and Trustgenix supported the testing by providing
their previously validated Liberty Interoperable products and
Interoperability of products is a key factor in deploying and
managing successful identity systems. Organizations specifying products
that have met Liberty's requirements for interoperability can count on
solutions that will deploy quickly and immediately interoperate with
other Liberty-enabled identity solutions. This allows organizations to
deploy open federated identity systems faster, more cost-effectively
and on the widest possible scale.
