Liberty has launched Business and Policy Deployment Guidelines. This will help policy makers set up Federated Identity Management and build Circles of Trust.

Liberty has launched “Business and Policy Deployment Guidelines” that will help policy decision managers develop Circles of Trust faster and more successfully.

“Organizations developing Circles of Trust need to address, among other things, what type of information will be shared among companies, how and when it will be shared, what security procedures will be used to maintain the confidentiality of such information and how participants may join or leave the Circle of Trust”.

Liberty Alliance has a Public Policy Expert Group, PPEG, and has representatives from BIPAC, the U.S. General Services Administration, Oracle and Sun Microsystems.

These members have developed the guidelines “by leveraging their work in open federated identity management”.

Michael Aisenberg, chair of Liberty’s PPEG and director of government relations, VeriSign, said, “Companies have a lot to consider as they move to establish Circles of Trust. We’ve created these guidelines to jump-start the business conversations policy decision managers need to have when creating Circles of Trust and to help organizations learn from our experience in developing open federated identity solutions”.

The Liberty Alliance Project is a global alliance of companies and membership is open to all commercial and non-commercial organizations.
