Subject: Re: [PartyId "type" negotiation]
Prasad Yendluri says the Registry does not "validate" the content submitted to it. Then what's to stop some punk from submitting a CPP saying he's National City Bank using their ABA Routing Number as one of his <partyId> values? I come along, find my "bank" by searching on the Routing Number, establish a CPA, and then send confidential information to whatever address was specified in one of the "bank's" Delivery Channels. I'm hoping that the Certificate information is enough to verify that who I think is National City Bank really is - i.e., the CPA is signed by somebody I trust (the Comptroller of the Currency, maybe?). If that's the case, and a chain of trust can be established, then I should be perfectly comfortable sending my payment orders to ABA Routing Number 044000011 and be assured that they're really heading off to National City Bank in Cleveland (or ever who their agent is). In this case, I neither have to trust the registry nor have to verify the ABA routing number (I already know what it is - that's how I searched for my bank in the first place). William J.
