I would just add that the mobile team is certainly interested is this functionality and this type of service.  We'll get back some more feedback asap, but we would want to help out and be involved.

Some quick thoughts:

* Would like to make sure we expand beyond just web app, but to mobile app requirements as well
** This is where Bruno and AeroGear security can come in for sure

* We want to discuss where the intersections/service points might be with our push architecture, and other bits.

* Would like to understand more about plans around picketlink vs resteasy vs portal security bits.
** Where are the overlaps, when do we use what, etc...
** Sounds like that is the discussion that needs the most clarity.
