I think someone mentioned the importance of the mobile space in the last
call. ( Google: "mobile first" ) The most straightforward are the mobile
browser, but if the client certs are available in some local certificate
store (analogous to Gnome keyring) that it could be an ideal for 1000s of
mobiles apps. I have certainly at least 20 different apps that require
authentication, I have never managed to remember all the passwords, so I
just have them remembered by the app.

Is this sg that could go into the use case section of the deliverables?
