Liberty Alliance Releases Legal and Privacy Guidelines

The Liberty Alliance released guidelines that address some of the legal and privacy issues surrounding federated identity systems.  The organization was formed to address identity issues when individuals log onto secure web sites for commercial and financial transactions.  To some extent, the organization was created as an alternative to Microsoft's Passport federated system, which has failed to catch on at this time.  Members of the LIberty Alliance include industry heavyweights such as IBM, Oracle, Bank of America,Sun, American Express, America Online, and many others.

The guidelines are available here.
