Bell Canada Enterprises (BCE) has signed a<br />
letter of intent to join other industry leaders in the Liberty Alliance<br />
Project, launched today to create an open standard for single sign-on for<br />
network identity. The open system will enable Internet users to carry a<br />
single, secure sign-on identity across all devices and all interactions on the<br />
Internet.<br />
    "As a charter member of the Alliance, BCE will help pioneer the creation<br />
of an open system that will increase accessibility and ensure the security of<br />
personal information for consumers on any device connected to the Internet,"<br />
said Michael Sabia, President of Bell Canada Enterprises.<br />
    "Customers and merchants are grappling with the complexity of multiple<br />
user signatures and the lack of universal open standards," said Mr. Sabia. "As<br />
more people are doing more things using more kinds of Internet devices, such<br />
as mobile phones, hand-held devices, computers, and televisions, consumers and<br />
businesses alike are seeking simpler and more secure ways to interact with the<br />
Internet. The Liberty Alliance Project is a significant and important step in<br />
this direction."<br />
    BCE will become the only Canadian charter member of the Alliance and will<br />
work along side more than two dozen other global industry leaders. The<br />
Alliance will develop a global standard for accessing communications systems<br />
from any device that connects to the Internet through a single sign-on<br />
solution. This system is intended to provide consumers with a convenient way<br />
of identifying themselves, while allowing them to maintain control of their<br />
personal information. The Alliance will develop the system in an open<br />
environment to promote development and healthy competition.<br />
    Over the next 60 days BCE will work with t<br />
