Deutsche Telekom wins IDDY 2008 Award

Just copying from the Liberty Alliance press release...

Deutsche Telekom AG - Deutsche Telekom AG has received a Multi-Protocol IDDY Award for its identity application designed to lower implementation barriers when it comes to the delivery of Online/IP-based services to consumers. Initially launched in 2002 and winner of the 2006 IDDY Award, the application has been steadily enhanced to offer multi-protocol capabilities for service provider interfaces as well as for authentication methods and automatic user identification. The application serves the requirements of the mass market for Online/IP-based consumer applications by providing fundamental functionalities such as Single Login, Automatic identification, Single Sign On and Single Logout.

* Highlights – With Deutsche Telekom AG serving as an identity provider, the application is a key business enabler for offering Online/IP-based services to Deutsche Telekom AG customers. The application ensures easy implementation of consumer services and shortens the time-to-market for new service offerings. It allows quick and cost-efficient link-up with partners using the identity standard protocol that fits best and reduces the complexity of the IT-architecture. The application provides consumers with a unique and consistent user-interface that is easy-to-use, transparent and secure.

* Technologies – With the goal of tying a wide variety of Online/IP-based consumer services together by means of a common identity management user experience and to provide scenario-focused login methods, the application currently supports SOAP/XML, Secure Token Service, ID-FF 1.2, SAML 2.0, HTTP Basic and HTTP Digest, as well as different authentication methods. The underlying architectural guidelines make it possible to integrate further IDM protocols with the latest enhancements moving to provide preliminary support for OpenID 1.1, OpenID 2.0 and Microsoft CardSpace.
