Liberty Alliance, the global identity community working to build what it calls a more trustworthy Internet for businesses, governments and people, today announced the launch of the public Liberty Alliance Telecom Special Interest Group (SIG). 

 

The group has been formed by representatives from Ericsson, NEC, NeuStar, Orange, Symlabs and TeliaSonera and is the 10th Liberty Alliance special interest group open to both Liberty Alliance members and non-members.

 

The goal of the SIG is to develop best practices for managing identity-information and identity-enabled transactions and services in the global telecom sector.

 

According to Jose Luis Mariz, strategic product manager at Ericsson and chair of the new SIG, “the formation of the Telecom SIG provides organizations and individuals in the telecom industry with an important public forum for collaboratively fostering the next generation of interoperable, secure and privacy-respecting identity-enabled applications for businesses and people.”
