Identity Federation to go mobile

(via InfoWorld:) “Single sign-on standards group the Liberty Alliance Project said Tuesday that it was taking over the work of European mobile computing standards group Radicchio Ltd. and that it will unveil a program to certify products and services for compliance with the Liberty Alliance’s federated network identity standards.”
Cool stuff. Radicchio inherited the mSign work. The merger with Liberty Alliance, who seem to be much more present in the application space than any of the predecessors, creates hope that this will actually see the light. Mobile phones probably are still the best carriers for personal identification (everybody owns one, everybody knows how to use them, they have network and local connectivity, they are secure and can be programmed). Watch this space.
