Session Topic: Universal Shopping Cart

Tuesday 3J

Convener: Kevin Cox

Notes-taker(s): Kevin Cox

Tags for the session - technology discussed/ideas considered: Behavioral identification, personal shopping carts, CloudOS,


The idea of using the person's device instead of a user code and the idea of using previously remembered behavior instead of a password was discussed. The idea that a person's shopping cart is theirs and not the website was discussed and the implications of how that reduces the need for strong identification at the website selling the goods. Strong identification is needed at the time of the payment but that identification is the responsibility of the payment gateway and not the selling website.

It was pointed out that there is a whole new product needed to manage the history of what goes into the shopping cart.
