Concordia Project Sponsors Entitlements Management Workshop

Concordia Project Sponsors Entitlements Management Workshop
Staff, Concordia Announcement

The Concordia Project, a global cross-industry initiative formed by
members of the standards community to drive harmonization and
interoperability among open standards, policy initiatives and protocols,
today announced a public standards-based policy and entitlements
management workshop taking place from 10:00am to 5:00pm at the Burton
Catalyst Conference in San Diego on June 23, 2008. The public meeting
is sponsored by Liberty Alliance and Burton Group and is the first
Concordia event to focus on policy and entitlements management and
associated standards such as XACML and WS-Policy. The interactive  
will feature use case and interoperability scenarios presented by
representatives from the defense, government and manufacturing sectors.
During the June 23, 2008 workshop, early deployers of policy and
entitlement management solutions will present requirements for policy
management, including entitlement and fine grained authorization in
the enterprise, to a panel of policy and technology experts from the
Concordia community. The panel will identify and discuss commonalities
and potential options for successfully addressing use case scenarios.
The Concordia community will then work collaboratively to prioritize
the next steps involved in developing solutions to meet deployer
requirements based on the use cases presented at the workshop and those
submitted to the Concordia community through its public wiki. The June
23, 2008 workshop is the sixth time Concordia members have held public
face-to-face meetings and follows the RSA Conference 2008 event where
the community held its first interoperability demonstrations. Nearly
600 attended the public workshop where FuGen Solutions, Internet2,
Microsoft, Oracle, Ping Identity, Sun Microsystems and Symlabs
demonstrated interoperability scenarios designed to meet deployer
requirements using Information Card, Liberty Alliance, and WS-* identity
protocols. Previous meetings have taken place at RSA Conference 2007,
Catalyst 2007, Digital ID World, the Identity Open Space (IOS) and
the Internet Identity Workshop (IIW). All organizations and individuals
interested in contributing to the deployment of standardized policy
frameworks and proven interoperable standards-based solutions are
encouraged to attend the workshop.
