I'm new on this list and realize I'm jumping into the middle of a discussion
I know little about. I am chair of WAP Forum's E-commerce Expert Group
(ECOMEG) and have been exchanging private e-mails with a number of members
of your group during the last few days. Essentially, in the next ECOMEG
meetings we will be trying to address the business questions surrounding the
need for availability of credentials and the various use-cases in which such
availability will be required.
Looking around at the work being done, I have not come across many other
groups which produced work on this topic. I would think that there can be
great value in learning more about what each group is doing, and this can be
quite useful for us at the WAP Forum/ECOMEG to understand the work further
and see if there is need and interest to coordinate this work with WAP work
Therefore, although I am not sure what dormant and shutdown mean in the IETF
working group context, it doesn't sound like a great thing...
I'd like to suggest that some exploration of potential cooperation be
examined. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend SLC meeting.
However, during the upcoming WAP Forum meeting (December 2-6, Berlin), I
will check who from ECOMEG will be attending SLC and see if we can
coordinate an attendee to your group. I would also like to encourage a
presentation of SACRED work to ECOMEG (and possibly check with WAP Security
working group - WSG if they would be interested in this too).
