While Liberty has a very rich framework for SSO, it does not define a comprehensive infrastructure protocol framework for SOAP/XML web services. While this might look as a limitation, it can also be a strength: it’s non-dependance on SOAP, WSDL et al. makes Liberty a truely componentizable architecture, where SSO and Identity functionality can be applied to all kinds of Web Service technologies, including e.g. RESTful web services.
