Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:
Steve demoed OneID, an identity service that doesn’t have usernames. OneID identifies and authenticates the user via public keys stored on their devices. Steve demonstrated transfer of keys by scanning QR codes, and showed the several ways that OneID can authenticate users, with the addition of a second device for higher risk transactions.
