Hi Virginie,

During the 20Y+ we have bought stuff on the web and paid with credit cards,
the method haven't changed.  That is, in spite of a billion s.c. EMV-cards
in circulation, on the web we are currently stuck with highly inconvenient
and (any number of times proved) unsecure CNP (Card Not Present) schemes.

To me it looks like a task for your particular sector coming up with a
proposal on how to address this pretty obvious use case.

Apple have advanced the state of on-line payments by a mile in iPhone 6,
but AFAIK it doesn't include the web.
