Hi Lionel,

Do you know of any use outside of a mobile context? If there's interest, we can certainly look at it, but if it's relegated to just that market (whether or technical or social reasons), I don't think this would necessarily be the right place to advance it to a standard (speaking just for me).

Cheers,

I would propose to add it to the list of new potential authentication schemes but only if RFC 3310 is part of the same list. Otherwise, it could be only informal.
