Hi Mark,

Of course, to be applicable, the first requirement for SIM-based authentication schemes is to have a SIM card (or software based implementation) and this implies that you have a mobile subscription. 
However, the authentication mechanism is not contrite to mobile networks and can be typically used over any HTTP-based access, e.g. wifi, adsl, cable, etc., the mobile network being used only for AAA purposes, as trusted 3rd-party.
Moreover, the terminal itself can be a mobile phone but also any IP-enabled device (e.g. PC, tablet, etc.) providing a API to the SIM card. Moreover, the browser is seen as off-the-shelf application and not mobile specific.

For the reasons, I was considering that it would be a general interest to reference a standard document instead of an Informational RFC. And this period of "clean-up" of the HTTP documentation seems to be suitable for that.

Regards,

Lionel

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.
