Hello Manu,

As I already noted in the Web Payments IG, my groups work has started about the time OpenID got famous. We participated in OIF and InfoCard Foundation among others. Over time I noticed that identity is usually ill-defined and different people have different understanding of it, requiring different things from one and the same technology. (Which would explain some of the effects, you reported about.)

Since about eight years we've worked to overcome the problem by allowing different use cases, different protocols and credential types be handled in a single user-friendly pattern. "Basically - a user-centric usage pattern for *-centric identity, credentials and entitlements". The approach doesn't actually 'solve' any single problem, but it lets different technologies solve the problems they are designed to solve, putting them into a generic kind of 'meta credential' format. The format is flexible enough to allow for 'Payment Credentials', 'Identity Credentials' and any many other type of credentials being handled.

I'd like to introduce Peter Hofmann from our team to this list. Peter will join in here and should be helpful in determining whether this approach is of relevance in this context here. He knows how it works and has access to all of the documents produced during our work.

I'd be happy if you considered to discuss these 'Meta Credentials' and I offer to give a presentation on the solution approach, (more or less ;-) detailed data structure, software architecture and the resulting APIs and flows at the F2F.
