InfoWorld: Microsoft, Liberty Alliance square off again

Eric Dean, chairman of the Liberty Alliance Project and CIO of United Airlines, plans to provide details about the technology July 15 at The Burton Group’s Catalyst Conference 2002, according to an invitation distributed Monday to the press.

Leading up to its debut next week, few details have been released about the specification, and some industry watchers have started to tag the specification “vaporware.” Still, the idea of a standard technology for linking various authentication systems has received an enthusiastic response from a diverse collection of hardware, software, and Internet companies, said David Smith, senior analyst at Gartner.
