- Digital Identity Workshop
September 8-10, 2008, Anaheim, CA
RL “Bob” attended. There was a great deal of discussion about IDTBD,
driven primarily by Liberty Alliance folks looking at redefining and
realigning their mission with other IAM activities.
Internet2 has joined the InformationCard Foundation.
OAuth was also a topic of discussion, as an alternative to WS-Trust for
3-tier systems. SalesForce.com is actively looking at this, and noted
that their SOAP interface gets more use than their browser-based
interface, and they see the need to go beyond username/password and see
OAuth as a potential direction for them.
Covisint also presented. They are moving into healthcare and are
actively working on a large federated healthcare network in Tennessee,
and is exploring similar efforts in other states as well.
Andreas Åkre Solberg (UNINETT/FEIDE) and SimpleSAMLphp received an award

Tom met with project principals recently. Kuali Rice is becoming a

modules. Cornell is planning to deploy Rice and KIM using Shibboleth and
