Subject: Italy: Yet another OpenSignature standards effort


These guys have concluded that Java applets are bad and that you
should exclude the browser altogether by using something called
URL Programming Interface, which in essens hosts a local web-server
for handling the crypto and signature stuff.

I believe this is similar to the Austrian scheme, although a bit less documented.

Personally I think Java is good as a short-term solution but useless in
the long-run as Microsoft would never support a Java-based standard.
The need for accepting native and trusted code during browsing is also
something that does not seem to be ideal.
