EIC Award

I am happy to announce that Project Aristotle won an award for “Best new or improved standard” at the European Identity Conference. The win is shared with the Open Authentication (OAuth) and the Information Card Foundation (ICF).

The European Identity Award for the category “Best new or improved standard” went to the Aristotle Project for ArisID, an important enhancement of IGF (Identity Governance Frameworks) and CARML, which enhances user-friendliness of these important standards for IAM and GRC. This particular innovation had been promoted and supported by Oracle. The standardization initiative OAuth (Open Authentication) receives an award for their streamlined approach for authentication standardization, which finds a lot of market interest. The last award in this category goes to the Information Card Foundation (ICF) for standardizing the important approach of Information Cards for future identity management.

Congrats to the contributors of openLiberty, the members of Liberty Alliance TEG, as well as my colleagues at Oracle, who all contributed to the effort. Congratulations to OAuth and ICF as the co-winners!

A special thanks to Kuppinger Cole for organizing the event and for taking the time to recognize the efforts of all the award winners and of standards development in general.
