Strong editorial team for visual eID standard

During IETF last week in San Francisco we managed to form a really strong editorial team for the new visual eID standard.

This standard will make it possible to bind a visual representation of a certificate to its signature. More information about this project is available on my
Visual eID information page.

The editorial team:

Stefan Santesson, 3xA Security is lead editor as initiator and driver of this standards effort.

Russ Housley, Vigil Security. Russ is chairman of the Internet Engineering Task Force and was also co-editor of the original standard RFC 3709 on which this standards effort is based.

Siddharth Bajaj, VeriSign. VeriSign as the world leading provider of public certificates for web servers has been actively promoting a better UI experience for certificate based identification and authorisation. Siddharth has been actively involved with these efforts for almost a decade.

Leonard Rosenthol, Adobe. This standards effort was made possible much thanks to the standardisation of PDF in 2008. Leonard is the standards architect behind the development of an ETSI standard for PDF based Advanced Electronic Signatures (PAdES).

The work to write this standard will start immediately and a first draft will be published soon, no later than end of April.
