I will be participating on a panel at the forthcoming "7th Symposium on Identity and Trust on the Internet" or IDTrust08 at the prestigious NIST campus. You can find details on the program here.
Basically, I will be highlighting the need for incorporating SAML (and any other federated identity aspects) and xacml aspects into the Java EE environment (and the specifications of course). The panel will also talk about the upcoming XACML Interoperability event at the RSA Conference 2008 in April at San Francisco.
An excellent opportunity for me to not only participate in a prestigious panel but also meet/interact-with industry thought leaders such as Arshad Noor (Enterprise Key Management), Stephen Wilson (PKI) and of course Hal Lockhart and Tony Nadalin.
If you are going to be present at the workshop, I am sure our paths will cross. ;)
