Liberty Alliance Announces Products from CA, Entr'ouvert, Ericsson, HP, NTT, NTT Software and Symlabs Pass Interoperability Testing

First event to test against the final version of ID-WSF 2.0 and Liberty People Service specifications

PARIS, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Liberty Alliance, the global identity consortium working to build a more trusted Internet for consumers, governments and businesses worldwide, today announced that products from CA, Entr'ouvert, Ericsson, HP, NTT, NTT Software and Symlabs have passed Liberty Alliance testing. With today's testing results, nearly 80 identity products and solutions from vendors around the world have now passed Liberty Alliance testing for SAML 2.0, Liberty Federation and Liberty Web Services.

"Interoperability of identity products and solutions is key to the successful and wide scale deployment of federation, Web services, SOAs and social networking applications," said Roger Sullivan, president of the Liberty Alliance Management Board and vice president of Oracle Identity Management. "Vendors passing Liberty Alliance interoperability testing offer their customers assurances that products can interoperate from day-one and deliver real business value over the long-term."

Today's news marks the first time Liberty Alliance has tested vendors for interoperability of ID-WSF 2.0, the latest version of Liberty Web Services specifications which was released as final in October 2006. ID-WSF 2.0 includes Liberty People Service(TM), the industry's first open Web services framework that allows consumers and enterprise users in any market segment to manage applications such as calendars, blogs, e-mail, instant messaging and photo sharing in a secure, privacy-respecting and trusted federated social network.

Liberty Interoperable(TM) products are deployed extensively by governments and businesses worldwide. Organizations can trust that products that have passed Liberty Alliance testing will deploy quickly and can immediately interoperate with other Liberty-enabled technologies. A snapshot of organizations deploying Liberty's open and proven interoperable identity standards is available at http://projectliberty.org/index.php/liberty/adoption. A list of all identity products that have passed Liberty Alliance interoperability testing is available at http://projectliberty.org/liberty/liberty_interoperable/interoperable_pr...
