                 Identity Use Cases in Browser Catalog
                 draft-bertocci-identity-in-browser-00

Abstract

   This informational document aims to gather in a single place all the
   most important scenarios in which identity protocols in current use
   leverage web browser features to achieve their goals and deliver
   their intended user experience.  The purpose of compiling this
   scenario collection is to make it easier for the identity community
   to engage with the browser vendors, and in particular to preserve (or
   enhance) user experience and expressive power of the identity
   protocols in mainstream use as browsers introduce new privacy
   preserving restrictions and new identity tailored features.  By
   providing a single artifact, listing scenarios in a consistent
   format, we hope to anchor the conversation on concrete outcomes and
   impact of changes on end users, developers, providers and in general
   everyone contributing to identity in the industry.

1.  Overview

   As attempts to profile and track user activities on the web
   intensify, leading to increasingly egregious privacy violations,
   browser vendors introduce new constraints meant to thwart known
