Gabe, the system overview PDF states on page 1:
"This work is proprietary and confidential information of Visa
International Service Association and may be disclosed and used only as
authorized by Visa."

So, although publicly available, the doc seems not to be public.

	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:
http://partnernetwork.visa.com/pf/3dsec/download/trk_3dsec_system_overvi
ew_v102.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:
