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?”

The “Information Card Foundation” (ICF) has been launched

The Information Card Foundation has been launched on Monday, as reported by this article published by news.com: 

“A group including Equifax, Google, Microsoft, Novell, Oracle, and PayPal, plus nine leaders in the technology community announced on Monday the creation of the Information Card Foundation (ICF) with the goal of increasing awareness of the use of electronic ID cards on the Internet, and encouraging interoperability in business around new standards. …”

 

The ICF foundation web site should be live on Tuesday i.e. today.

 I think this is a great opportunity for improving interoperability in the identity federation space, including interoperability with other initiatives, such as Liberty Alliance’s.
