Deploying a federation takes a clear definition business need, technical know-how, and most importantly an understanding of privacy and policy considerations, which often brings with it contractual relationships with other organizations outside of the deploying organization. What's the best way to get these three groups within an organization to talk—and understand each other—the same language? Liberty has recently released a document, Liberty Alliance Contractual Framework Outline for Circles of Trust, that is designed to provide guidance on addressing contractual relationship structures that will likely be part of every Liberty-enabled deployment, and provides practical outlines and checklists for developing those contractual relationships. The document explores three different types of model deployments, and the associated contractual relationship(s) needed to delineate their rights, obligations, remedies, and allocation of risk with respect to the deployment. In this webcast we'll review the models and associated considerations to make your deployment successful—and help your legal team understand the language of federation.
