A conjectured integration

(Are you the author of this presentation?)

This is indeed a potential integration. We are working hard to figure out the best way to do this; we won’t be able to share details until we finish this exercise.

One design goal (at least, for me) will be to minimize the integration changes for all participants involved in the data flow. U-Prove is a protection mechanism on top of an existing architecture. It should be easy for IdPs to issue cards protected by the technology, for users to present them, and for RPs to verify the received claims.

And by the way, it’s U-Prove, not UProve; at least, that’s what the trademark says :)

Hi Christian, yes I'm the author.

I understand you wanting to solidify things before answering questions :-)

I'll correct the U-Prove branding.
