As discussed on our last call, given interest from our group in
understanding global trends regarding the use of stronger authentication
techniques globally as a potential deterent to identity theft and fraud,
Kevin O'Neil was able to secure participation from Gilles Lisimaque on our
next call (copying Sreeram and Rob as they may want to invite some of the
SAEG members to attend as well). Many of you know Gilles, but here's a bio

Questions we discussed, which we'll use to kick off our call are:
To what extent can smart cards aid in the reduction of identity theft?
What are the reasons for slow adoption in the U.S.?
What programs or industry efforts or events will trigger a more rapid
What are the issues of mass adoption and deployment that linger?
Why have European states and other nations been more aggressive in
deployment and what have been the lessons learned?
How can you fail to succeed, where have smart card programs faltered?
What has been the traditional push-back by banks, telecoms, others in
resisting or failing to move forward with smart cards?
Future? Standards, key drivers, obstacles, legislation, public fears of
poorly conceived deployments?
