Hello all,

One of the main benefits to the 'wallet'-approach is, that the negotiation between  the RP and the user's 'wallet' just doesn't have this problem at all.

Once the RP sends a statement about what 'instruments' and IdPs it accepts, it's up to the 'wallet' of the user to figure out what to use. Could be very plain and offer all matches to the user to make a pick or it can be way more sophisticated and implement the user's policy according to context.

And yes, FIDO should be among the technologies employed I'd say.

There's a very simple demo here:


It involves technology intended to solve the NASCAR problem. In step 2, the site you log into only needs to provide a login button; the browser will take care of the rest (finding out your IdP, etc).
