RE: [Hardware Based Secure Services IG] some topics to discuss

Yes this is a good point and definitively it has to be addressed.
There is a mechanism in GlobalPlatform for Access Control, this could be a good way to authorize the server part.
In another hand, smart cards are protected by authentication mechanisms so the "terminal" side (the server in this case) has to own credentials to do anything on the secure hardware.
One last point, the HW will have anyway to be accessed under user control. At least a user consent, in some cases a PIN entry.

Thanks Bruno!

A critical question is on your slide 10: how do we communicate between the Web and the Smart Card, without opening a channel that can be abused. Browsers want to be able to act as "user agents," to help users protect their privacy and security, so are wary of plugin-style interfaces. Can we specify further the functions we want to access (which could then be abstracted to be provided by a smartcard or other hardware device).

Talk with you soon,
