Identity Web Services Framework


Identity Web Services Framework (ID-WSF) was part of the Liberty Alliance and in April 2004 described it for deploying and managing identity-based web services in a secure and privacy-respecting federated social network.

Applications included Geolocation, contact book, calendar, mobile messaging and People Service, for managing social applications such as bookmarks, blogs, calendars, photo sharing and instant messaging.

Identity Web Services Framework is a protocol stack that profiles WS-Security, WS-Addressing, SAML and adds new protocol specifications of its own, such as the Discovery Service, for open market per user Discovery Service, and the People Service for delegation and social networking.
