Liberty Alliance HR-EDU Identity Management SIG

The Liberty Alliance, an international consortium which is developing interoperability standards for identity management, has founded a Special Interest Group for Human Resources and Education constituencies.  The charter of the group is:

to increase data portability in Education and HR sectors especially for Employability and Life Long Learning purposes. It aims is to study use cases, recommendations for new Liberty ID-SIS and cross interoperability with other actors in this field (user communities, specification and standardisation bodies).

How this might play with (or against) the IMS efforts to create interoperability standards for ePortfolios remains to be seen.
