This looks quite interesting!

For the (few) people who have followed my SKS/KeyGen2 effort I guess the
question is has this stuff just died?

Fortunately not.  I'm basically trying to do what Microsoft never did
(http://blogs.msdn.com/b/card/archive/2011/02/15/beyond-windows-cardspace.aspx),
creating a universal browser identity client with on-line banks, e-governments,
and various cloud services as the primary target. 

Unlike traditional "identity" projects SKS/KeyGen2 is also trespassing on alien
ground such as virtual credit cards and virtual SIM-cards.
