Sun Java System Identity Server Delivers Support for Liberty Alliance Phase 2 Specification

Sun Microsystems' Java System Identity Server has become the industry's first commercial product from a software platform vendor to support the Liberty Alliance Phase 2 specifications. This support expands the broad functionality of the Sun Java System Identity Server, a key component of the Java Enterprise System, further enabling the deployment and adoption of secure and federated identity-based Web services to fixed and mobile users' devices.

"Open standards are fundamental to the development of secure, federated identity solutions and Web services. Expanding on our support for the Liberty Alliance specifications will help our customers deliver mobility with security - the right services to the right people at the right time on any device," said Jonathan Schwartz, executive vice president of software for Sun. "Identity is a critical component for secure delivery and deployment of the network services that help our customers gain a competitive advantage in an ever-changing marketplace."

The integrated identity services of the Java Enterprise System - access management, directory, provisioning and delegated administration - provide the best offering for customers to reap the benefits of federated network identity. The Java Enterprise System allows Sun customers to leverage functionality of the current and future Liberty specifications through the Java System Identity Server. Early access to the Java System Identity Server's latest Liberty functionality is available for qualified Sun customers today. For more information please contact Sun at: [email protected].
