Davor: Our goal of implementing SPC was to reduce drop-off rate in challenge flow of 3DS.
14:05:14 [Ian]
...we have about 10% drop-off rate ordinarily.
14:05:27 [Ian]
...SCA is here to stay, so we want to streamline
14:05:28 [Manish]
Manish has joined #wpwg
14:05:36 [Ian]
...we started working last April with W3C, Airbnb, Google
14:06:04 [Ian] August 2021 we had our first successful SPC payment in Airbnb environment internally
14:06:16 [Ian]
...that led us to API changes
14:06:24 [Ian]
...and then a stable version of the API in Chrome 95

Davor: We faced some challenges along the way.
14:07:47 [Ian]
...we needed to change our integration a bit to implement a graceful fallback to 3DS.
14:08:02 [Ian] thing that proved difficult was to track instrument enrollment across devices
14:08:17 [Ian]
...we had to choose between "always authenticating" and relying on a cookie. There are advantages to each.
14:08:40 [Ian]
...there is now a UI when there is no credential match; a cookie helps us avoid that UX
14:08:45 [Ian]
present+ Jonathan_Grossar

present+ Gerhard_Oosthuizen
14:09:12 [Ian]
Davor: We also wanted to be able to distinguish user canceling and genuine error
14:09:27 [Ian]
...we use a cookie for this as well; if present the error is due to "canceling"
14:09:36 [Ian]'s not a foolproof approach but it's the best we came up with.
14:09:54 [Ian]
...if someone uses our integration in an iframe, this iframe can be sandboxed, which can limit or make our integration not work at all
14:10:12 [Ian]
...we hope that, in the next steps, to address these challenges as well as a few others.
14:10:24 [Ian]
...we are satisfied with progress so far and look forward to the demo.

Davor: That password field is part of our challenge simulator. It's not part of SPC. You need to go through this ID&V before enrollment of the SPC credential.

...Davor, have you thought about using SPC with other payment methods?
14:17:35 [Ian]
Davor: Personally I have not thought a lot about that yet (but my colleagues may have).
14:18:24 [Ian]
Antoine: We have had some discussions about using SPC in different contexts for delegation of authentication under PSD2. In open banking, for example, there are some challenges distinct from cards.
14:18:41 [Ian] the current focus is on refining our approach with cards before looking at other methods
14:18:48 [Gerhard]
14:19:01 [Ian]
Antoine: But some other payment methods might be interested in this.
14:19:03 [nicktr]
14:20:08 [smcgruer_[EST]]
14:20:10 [nicktr]
14:20:10 [Ian]
Antoine: The major challenge with other payment methods is that incentives are different (e.g., iDeal has a well-established SCA approach already)
14:20:37 [Ian]
Antoine: In Brazil SPC might be useful for debit card payments, for example.
14:20:44 [Ian]
..but I do think that we'll see more usage of SPC

14:21:51 [Ian]
...I think if we get traction in that space, then SPC could be used "sort of for free" in an open banking context
14:22:01 [Ian]

14:25:31 [Ian]
...additionally we thought it was not going to disrupt the flow a lot.
14:25:44 [Ian]
...but if you feel that it is an issue, do you think that Conditional UI might be a better approach?
14:26:16 [Ian]
...the privacy of SPC comes in part from an ability to not be able to distinguish "no credential" from "cancel"
14:26:27 [Ian]
...the UX is there to prevent a timing attack
14:26:31 [Ian]

ok, Ian, the speaker queue is closed
14:27:35 [nicktr]
14:27:43 [Ian]
rouslan: With Conditional UI, the api returns a promise that "hangs." The "hanging" of the promise means either credential not found or user canceled.
14:27:56 [Ian]

Gerhard: With open banking a flow exists where you just pick your bank. You are redirected to the bank site (and no information is shared with the merchant).
14:31:20 [Ian] the general flow, your identifying instrument has not yet been shared with the merchant
14:31:32 [Ian]
...but using SPC in this context MIGHT therefore leak more information than in the general flow
14:31:36 [Ian]

agendum 2 -- PayPal Topics -- taken up [from Ian]
14:35:54 [Ian]
Gargi: This is an open question for this group. Recognizing the user is an important topic. We've been talking a lot about privacy at this meeting. Most browsers allow customers to manage cookies and allow them to delete data.
14:36:08 [Ian] are we thinking about tracking registrations going forward?
14:36:14 [nicktr]
14:36:16 [Ian] do we keep track of returning devices?
14:36:32 [nicktr]
14:37:12 [Ian]
Gargi: When you register a device? Are you seeing that privacy settings are making it difficult to track registrations?
14:37:19 [Ian] do you avoid re-registering customers?
14:37:46 [Ian]
Davor: We have seen it happen. If the user's browser deletes the cookie or 3p cookies are not allowed, we go through enrollment again.

14:41:15 [Ian]
Ian: Request Storage API
14:42:35 [Ian]
smcgruer_[EST]: Roughly speaking, the API intends to give user ability to share storage, with consent.
14:42:45 [Ian]

14:44:52 [smcgruer_[EST]]

rouslan: I agree that if a browser and user could know for sure that a payment was happening, that would be great for users.
14:46:09 [Ian]
...but payments are very complex
14:46:15 [Ian]
...I want to understand the PayPal question more
14:46:26 [Ian] my limited experience, PayPal uses redirects for payments
14:46:35 [Ian] that 1p context you have access to all your cookies
14:46:50 [Ian]
...or are you explicitly interested in cross-origin iframes?

eg wouldn't "shipping address" be important, for example, to prevent accepting money if the merchant is unable to ship the user the item?
14:57:00 [AdrianHB_]
To answer Nick_S: What payment instrument types does the current user have that it can pay with?

that also matters for regional law things - it's not legal to ship alcohol to every state, for example

3. I18N joint meeting [from Ian]
15:00:24 [AdrianHB_]
I believe the solution is sharing payment instrument identifiers in a "non trackable" way. i.e. The user has a payment instrument of type X with a temporary identifier (different for each tx) Y

same issue here
15:05:59 [Ian]
15:06:12 [nicktr]
Ian: introduces Issue 971
15:06:38 [nicktr]
...the plan is go ahead with the recommendation
15:07:11 [bdewater]
@ljharb for regional law things: if I think of Shopify's checkout, the steps are contact info, shipping info, payments. so that determination if alcohol can be shipped would be made before payments
15:07:11 [nicktr]
...we have a couple of choices about how to fix: localizable (sp?) for a webwide solution or a more specific fix
15:07:39 [nicktr]
15:07:47 [Ian]
Ian: Is that the shared understanding of how we will proceed on PR API?
15:07:49 [r12a]
15:08:05 [Ian]
addison: Localizable is kind of stalled, but we think it's the right path forward collectively.
15:08:13 [Ian]
...discussion is whether it belongs in WebIDL or somewhere else
15:08:31 [Ian] clarification on your summary: I'm not quite sure what the proposal is for Payment Request
15:09:38 [nicktr]
ian: we propose a recommendation with "hooks"
15:09:50 [nicktr]
...if localizable comes along, we can use that
15:10:11 [nicktr]
...if it looks like it's going to be a long time, do a specific solution
15:11:17 [nicktr]
15:11:24 [Ian]
Ian: It would be an actual Recommendation with hooks
15:11:31 [Ian]
Addison: Our concern is backward compatibility.
15:12:03 [Ian]
...people will want to interoperate with those. If we don't describe "lang" and "dir" from the outset and put normative language around them, we'll be in a state where we have non-internatoinlized fields
15:12:20 [plh]
15:13:09 [ljharb]
bdewater: ah k
15:13:41 [plh]
15:16:05 [Ian]
Addison: We'd like to see a platform-wide solution to the degree possible.
15:16:38 [Ian]
Ian: How is it going?
15:16:48 [Ian]
Addison: Slowly. Lots of specs with a small number of i18n-able strings
15:16:55 [Ian]
...I recognize that what you have with PR API is relatively a corner case
15:17:19 [Ian]
15:17:44 [Ian]
plh: It's not clear whether we are going to have a single general solution.
15:18:06 [Ian]
...from a developer perspective, dir/lang would need to be optional (leveraging document default)
15:18:12 [Ian]
..and there are ways to make it backward compatible
15:19:12 [Ian]
present+ Kris_Chapman
15:19:13 [nicktr]
15:19:55 [Ian]
nickTR: It's a pragmatic question. it sounds like we can either wait for Localizable on an undefined time scale.
15:20:16 [Ian]
...or put in a 1-off implementation for dir/lang but implementers are unpersuaded because it's an edge case.
15:20:53 [Ian]
1) Wait for localizable, no rec
15:20:59 [Ian]
2) Rec with hooks for future localizable
15:21:03 [Ian]
3) Rec with dir/lang
15:21:47 [Ian]
NickTR: I think the WG's leaning would be #3.

smcgruer_[EST]: i missed the context, what JS language feature did you have in mind?
15:24:27 [Ian]
Ian: I think it's either #1 or #2 (that's what I'm hearing)
15:24:55 [ljharb]
smcgruer_[EST]: hmm - maybe i'm not understanding. what lang does `croissant` have?
15:25:09 [Ian]
Addison: Personally it's not our job holding up Recommendations. This WG has worked with us well, and I appreciate the willingness to continue to work with us as we navigate the space.
15:25:31 [Ian]
...I don't know if it's helpful overall for us to hold you up from Rec as long as we all have a commitment together to work on resolving the issue.
15:25:56 [Ian]
Addison: Right stake in the ground is important.
15:26:27 [Ian]
Ian: What else can we do to be helpful in your conversation about Localizable?
15:26:36 [Ian]
Addision: It is already helpful to say "this is hurting us not having this."
15:27:05 [Ian]
...this is a large multi-year process. It's costly to have lots of 1-off solution.
15:27:15 [Ian]
..that makes option #3 unattractive
15:27:48 [Ian]
r12a: Thank you for agreeing to put into the spec BEFORE recommendation a Note that says "This needs to be fixed but we don't yet know how to do it. We are working on it we will add to the spec."
15:29:42 [Ian]
NickTR: PROPOSED: We go forward with option #2 (Rec with hooks)

15:55:25 [Ian]
Uchi: We also have some opportunities through the Interledger Foundation
