THE “ANNOUNCEMENT” at the Liberty 2.0 meeting was for openLiberty.
It is a global Liberty Alliance Open Source Initiative to support open source developers building identity-based applications, addressing key industry requirements for increased security and privacy. It will support easier and faster application development and Interoperability with Liberty-based deployments worldwide.
“ID-WSF is currently the only realistic framework for securing Web services…”
– Scott Cantor, Internet2
It will be a comprehensive portal – referencing and complementing other open source infinitives such as Bandit, Higgins, OpenID etc. It includes Forums, Wiki, discussions and a member-contributed downloadable code based on Liberty Federation and Liberty Web Services.
The Initial focus will be on ID-WSF WEb Services Consumer WSC libraries and SAMLE 2.0 functionality. Participate, leverage, contribute, Converge!
One question was asked about licensing – They will be using the Apache License and Contributor agreement.
Just for fun I googled Open Liberty and this Ice Skating club came up first. When I googled Open Liberty Alliance the portal list of Open Source projects came up.
