Phase one of the Liberty Alliance specification, which Novell supports, will offer a federated network identity and authentication-sharing model that will interoperate with existing identification systems and network access devices. Find out which companies have now added their support.

In a nutshell:
The Sun Microsystems-backed open identity project brought on new sponsor members Cingular Wireless, i2 Technologies, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone, SAP, and Wave Systems. The chairman of the alliance is Eric Dean, CIO of United Airlines.

Sun and other high-profile technology and industry players last October formed the Liberty Alliance, which is working to develop an open and federated identity standard for authenticating users on the Internet.

Other Liberty Alliance members include AOL Time Warner, American Express, Bell Canada, Citigroup, France Telecom, Novell, NTT DoCoMo, General Motors, Hewlett-Packard, MasterCard, Nokia, Openwave Systems RSA Security, Sony, United Airlines, and Vodafone.
