Last week at the RSA Security Conference, the Liberty Alliance hosted a workshop where Intel, British Telecom, and Hewlett-Packard showed a joint proof of concept which made use of the Liberty Alliance Advanced Client functionality to show the secure provisioning of network credentials over the wire.
We had several presentations, including HP's presentation, BT's presentation, and of course, my presentation on the Identity Capable Platform (ICP). The ICP is a research project at Intel's Corporate Technology Group examining how a computing platform could be extended to support the concept of identity and to participate in secure identity transactions.
The workshop was well attended filling the seats in the room and with many people standing. It was great to see such interest in this stuff, especially with many of them staying for the entire 3 hour workshop (without a break!).
