[Agenda] Tokenization task force call on 9 May 2017

Hi all,

The tokenization task force will meet tomorrow, 9 May, from 11:30amET to noon ET.

Call information:

We will meet on irc.w3.org in #wpwg.

At the last meeting [3] there was definitely interest in discussing and better understanding three token types (network, issuer, gateway).
Sachin took an action item to create some sequence diagrams for network and gateway tokens. If those diagrams are ready for
tomorrow’s call, they will help inform the discussion.


 * Getting clarity around what problem we want to solve. For discussion purposes, here are some topics that we might
   be trying to address:

     - Reducing checkout page code complexity by creating a common data abstraction across network, issuer, and gateway
       tokens. Roy points out that the original draft of the tokenization spec [2] included all three token types but there was
       pushback on the utility of including gateway tokens. What we heard at last week’s call and at the Chicago FTF meeting
       is that people also want us to address gateway tokens, so we need to figure out what that means concretely.

    - Moving checkout page tokenization to payment apps. Would that increase security? Would parties tokenizing in libraries
      on the merchant side today see value in earlier tokenization in payment apps?
    - Not yet discussed, but worth adding to this thread: in-browser tokenization. Any interest? Value?

    - W3C standard tokenization format. My sense is that this is not what people have thought we would be doing; I mention
      it here mostly to get confirmation.
