Event Overview:

Today, everyone is talking about Web Services being the next big thing to drive both consumer and business use of the Internet. What isn't always discussed in the press is that to truly reach their full potential, future web services will rely on the use of an open, standards based approach to network identity. What exactly is network identity? Network identity is the means by which a user can be authenticated and authorized to access a particular web service. This talk will provide an introduction to network identity concepts, and discuss two related projects which are developing open, federated systems for web services, Project Liberty from the Liberty Alliance and Project Shibboleth from the Internet2 organization. If you are interested in the future of the Internet and in the evolution of Web Services, you should attend this talk.
