The November 2007 meeting of the Triangle Linux Users Group, sponsored 
by Sun Microsystems, will be held Thursday, November 8, 2007 at Red Hat. 
(http://www.redhat.com/about/contact/ww/americas/raleigh.html). Pat 
Patterson from Sun Microsystems will provide us with a developer 
perspective on digital identity, starting from the emergence of LDAP in 
the 90s, through single sign-on, SAML and the Liberty Alliance protocols 
to recent developments such as OpenID, Cardspace and OAuth. The emphasis 
will be on understanding the protocols and how they are implemented in 
the real world, with a particular focus on deciding which (if any!) 
approach to select for a given project.

Pat Patterson is a federation architect at Sun Microsystems, focusing on 
federation, identity-enabled Web services and OpenSSO, Sun's open-source 
implementation of those technologies. Pat's 
blog(http://blogs.sun.com/superpat) centers on identity-related topics.
