To be more clear, the solutions we need to create for banking and e-commerce in countries that require a more advanced UX to sign a transaction should be a parallel piece of work separate from the core Crypto API. This functionality straddles the line between "Identity" and core crypto APIs.

I think this is something that we can keep on a "roadmap". The scope of the crypto API will necessarily be narrow for the first iteration, adding any kind of UI is something we should plan for in a later iteration.

Are smartcard digital signatures on transactions like the ones required in e-commerce / e-banking transactions in Korea, China, and elsewhere (tied to "real" legal identities) going to be considered in scope? From reading the draft scope document, I got the impression that this would be out of scope. I think it is OK for it to be out of scope, as long as there is some other (formal or informal) group working on standardizing this. It is a high priority for us.

Cheers,
Brian
