New issue 1233: How to represent pending verification

Mark Haine:

In some cases an identity assurance process can take considerable time due to human elements being needed to complete the full identity assurance.  These are often implemented in a back end workflow.

It is also possible that for a particular implementation some end users are pre-verified when a relying party redirects them to a provider and others are not pre-verified.  The Relying party has no way to determine whether the end user is pre-verified.

How can an eKYC & IDA flow provide a deterministic service to a relying party if there is a need for a back end process to run that can not be relied upon to complete within sensibe time bounds for an OpenID flow?
