[Servercert-wg] Identity in browser UIs

G’day Folks,

I listened to Chris’ presentation today at the CABF F2F 48. There are a couple of things I am not clear on…

1.      What are the list of WG’s that Browsers are already participating in where Identity UI is being discussed? Can the participating Browsers please post a list of WG’s or forums they are participating in where this is discussed?

2.      Secondary to the above, which of these are potentially open to CAs participating in them?

3.      If CABF previously voted to stop work on coordinating Identity UIs, it would be good to understand the context for that decision – and I understand that potentially Ryan may be able to provide the documentation for this.

4.      In respect to the alleged decision from #3 above, or any decision the CABF has made in the past, is there some prohibition in our by-laws that stops us from ever discussing it in future?? If the membership wants to take a fresh look at this particular issue/opportunity, aren’t we free to do so?

5.      If there are forums where this is being discussed today, wouldn’t it be more efficient to coalesce an Industry perspective in CABF and then send a representative to those forums to convey that perspective rather than waiting for individual players to show up piecemeal to provide their perspectives.

I don’t have the historical context of the decision to work on this issue or not work on it, but it certainly seems to be a hot topic of interest today, and I am wondering if there is support for this in the CABF, why we can’t proceed to seek to address this like any other issue we identify?
