Security for virtualized datacentres

ComputerWire logo More than half of Liberty Alliance Group members will implement version 1.1 of the organization's specifications for federated network identity within the next 12 months.

That's according to a recent internal poll of Liberty's founder and sponsor-level members. Liberty said 59% either plan to implement the specifications, issued for public review in November, within the next year or have already implemented them. There are 41 founder and sponsor members of Liberty.

Liberty published the survey having been stung last December by reports it had conceded defeat to Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft Corp's Passport on Windows. Liberty promptly issued a statement, re-affirming its "focus on all platforms."

Yesterday's survey is designed to emphasize support and re-capture the initiative. Liberty said more than 70% of respondents plan to implement specifications into products or services for customers, and 52% "placed a high priority" on using the specifications for employees.
