Project Concordia

Worried about too many competing specifications driving the identity management landscape? Not sure which one to pick for your organization? Some of these worries are being put to rest by Project Concordia. It's a global initiative with representatives from the CardSpace, Liberty Alliance, OpenID, openLiberty.org, SAML 2.0 and WS-Federation communities to provide interoperability between these identity standards by creating profiles based on use cases. Eventually, some of these specifications should merge.

The work has already started with the first meeting between Liberty SAML 2.0 and Microsoft representatives to be held during the Burton Catalyst 2007 in San Francisco.
