On November 29, 2006, Oracle announced “an open initiative, the Identity Governance Framework (IGF), designed to help organizations better govern and protect sensitive identity-related employee, customer and partner information as it flows across heterogeneous applications. Leading identity vendors including CA, Layer 7 Technologies, Novell, Ping Identity, Securent and Sun Microsystems, Inc. have reviewed a draft of the Framework and plan to work with Oracle to develop full specifications.”

Don Bowen, Director of Identity Integration at Sun Microsystems, commented “The direction which the Identity Governance Framework is heading is positive, Sun supports its submission to a standards body and thinks the Liberty Alliance may be best, as it is a natural and essential evolution of the work already done within that organization.”

Being able to leverage open standards to share Identity information across a heterogenous IT environment should be positive for our customers. It’s good to see major players in the Identity Management market cooperate in this initiative.
