The Liberty Alliance

In today's information economy, trust is the necessary foundation for secure interoperability, and central to the successful realization of what's possible on the Web. From the user perspective as well as that of the deploying organization, it’s an issue of who is trusted with what….and that requires policy, business and technology understanding and infrastructure. Thus the Liberty Alliance emerged: a first-of-its-kind standards organization with a global membership that provides a holistic approach to identity.

“Fidelity Investments now uses Liberty protocols and SAML technologies to allow authorized users logging into the Fidelity Investments portal to gain access to the federal government’s Social Security Administration Web site for the purpose of transactions with the government.”
