Dear Web Payments Working Group,

Thanks to some recent good work by Keyur Patel and Wanli Yang, I’ve been able to make progress on two specifications:

 - Tokenized Card Payment 
   https://w3c.github.io/webpayments-methods-tokenization/

 - Payment Method Encryption
   https://w3c.github.io/webpayments-crypto/

The tokenized card payment leverages the general-purpose Encryption specification. The tokenized card spec also includes algorithms for the first time, modeled on the basic card algorithms. They will need a lot of refinement, but I’m happy with this first draft.

We have made some progress on understanding how a payment method specification can leverage encryption, though we have more work to do. The Encryption specification leverages
JSON Web Encryption and related technologies.

I look forward to additional text from Rick Waller and Keyur Patel as we continue to flesh out the two specs and how they connect.

Reminder: the next tokenization task force call takes place 12 June. The spec is likely to change between now and then, and I expect we’ll review them both during that call.

Ian
