Research on Security and Innovation in the Cloud
“Marco Casassa Mont’s “Research on Security and Innovation in the Cloud” Blog. The focus of this blog is on trends, new technologies/solutions and innovative aspects of Security and the Cloud. I am a senior researcher at HP Labs: I am very keen to explore and discuss technical, business and social aspects of Security and Cloud Computing, also in the context of mobility, big data and information analytics. New trends are going to affect individuals and organizations in the medium/long terms. What is the next big thing in this space?”

Liberty Alliance releases the Identity Assurance Framework (IAF) and Identity Governance Framework (IGF) Specifications

Today, Liberty Alliance has publicly announced the release of the  Identity Assurance Framework (IAF) and Identity Governance Framework (IGF) Specifications:


"Liberty Alliance, the global identity community working to build a more trust-worthy internet for consumers, governments and businesses worldwide, today announced an industry milestone in driving trust and privacy into enterprise and identity-enabled applications based on the release of the Liberty Identity Assurance Framework (IAF) and the Liberty Identity Governance Framework (IGF). Today’s news is the result of the collaborative development of standardized frameworks and technologies designed to meet cross-industry requirements for policy-based security and privacy systems, with a focus on streamlining the establishment and management of identity and trust across user-driven applications and networks."


I believe this is a first, important steps towards providing a more systemic approach to assurance and privacy management in complex organisational (and cross-organisational) contexts.


More details can be found in the Liberty Alliance’s announcement, here.
