I've mentioned this to several people before because OpenID is similar in
architecture and intent to Visa's 3-D Secure (the technology behind Verified
by Visa and Mastercard's SecureCode - password authentication for ecommerce
use of credit cards), something I spent a lot of time with while I was at
Visa. 3-D Secure was deployed several years ago and has met with varying
levels of success. I've been frustrated because the specs are not available
publicly without executing a license and thus lessons from 3-D secure are
hard to discuss in the context of OpenID.
I finally found a public summary of 3-D secure here:
102.pdf (there's a ton of non-technical stuff, but there's a good amount of
technical detail - page 15 onwards).
There's also another less technical document discussing the benefits and
architecture of 3-D Secure for various stakeholders:
The 3-D Secure main page is here:
