Hi Mike and others,

Thanks for your interest in this project.

I do think it would be helpful to run through an example using
authentication as our first target.  I had an intern trying to pull
links and organize them in this space over the summer, but what I have
back so far isn't enough of a starting point.

Would the reverse direction be more helpful in that this group designs
a starting page?  For those that have not looked at the google doc,
this would be the use cases and device types for authentication,
allowing you to drill down to other links (existing where possible) to
learn more about the options.  We will likely need 2 levels before a
branch out or to specify what is needed in the landing pages for
options available.

Thank you,

I like the idea of a short introduction to each topic and then moving on to specific situations (use cases and device types; maybe deployment scenarios as well, such as how big is the set of things that have to authenticate to each other, or how will keys be provisioned). In general, I like the idea of quickly getting to specifics and providing pointers to appropriate standards.

I think even concentrating on a specific scenario (signed email) could be enlightening, considering the differences when you're all part of an enterprise vs. a community with no central authority.
