Subject: re:[pki-tc] Question on PKI for financial institutions

I have my own theories about this, but I was wondering if Identrus is 
involved with the PKI TC at all?  It would be good to reference Identrus's 
latest value proposition. 

[My own view is that we need to transition to embedded PKI, ideally in the 
form of smartcards and related devices.  And apply seamless, invisible 
digital signatures to suitable transactions, like loan documentation, 
insurance claims, securities trading etc where there is (a) high risk, (b) 
high longevity, and (c) multiple Relying Parties.  If we can make PKI 
embedded to the same extent as magnetic stripe technology, then there is 
no question of having to "sell" it to end users of financial services.]
