The workshop already links to all papers and slides on the website. There
will be a final report released in about 2 weeks. The
public-identity@w3.org will be list I use to get input to the draft final
report, to join email "subscribe" in subject line to
public-identity-request@w3.org. From my memory there was interest in
MutualAuth, primarily from the financial industry and banks, who really
did seem to want it. The browser vendors were of course skeptical of
anything in chrome, but other discussions such as Dirk Balfanz's do to
auth in the OS layer could provide an alternative.
