Abstract

A schema-based Wallet service for centralized access to per-user financial data, wherein access to data is based on each user's identity. The Wallet service includes a schema that defines rules and a structure for each user's data, and also includes methods that provide access to the data in a defined way. The Wallet schema thus corresponds to a logical document containing the data for each user. The user manipulates (e.g., reads or writes) data in the logical document by data access requests through defined methods. In one implementation, the Wallet schemas are arranged to provide XML documents, and the services provide methods that control access to the data based on the requesting user's identification, defined role and scope for that role In this way, document data can be accessed by its owner, and shared to an extent determined by the owner. The structure of the data is defined from the perspective of the data, not from that of an application program or a device, whereby appropriate programs can communicate with the Wallet service to access the data, with existing knowledge of the schema-defined format, regardless of the device or application program in use. Extensibility is defined into the schema.

  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0003]
    The invention relates generally to computer network data access, and more particularly to systems, methods and data structures for accessing data and data-related services over a network.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0004]
    There are many types of data that users need to manage and otherwise access. For example, users keep word processing documents, spreadsheet documents, calendars, telephone numbers and addresses, e-mail messages, financial information and so on. In general, users maintain this information on various personal computers, hand-held computers, pocket-sized computers, personal digital assistants, mobile phones and other electronic devices. In most cases, a user's data on one device is not accessible to another device, without some manual synchronization process or the like to exchange the data, which is cumbersome. Moreover, some devices do not readily allow for synchronization. For example, if a user leaves his cell phone at work, he has no way to get his stored phone numbers off the cell phone when at home, even if the user has a computing device or similar cell phone at his disposal. As is evident, these drawbacks result from the separate devices each containing their own data.
  • [0005]
    Corporate networks and the like can provide users with remote access to some of their data, but many users do not have access to such a network. For many of those that have access, connecting to a network with the many different types of devices, assuming such devices can even connect to a network, can be a complex or overwhelming problem.
  • [0006]
    Moreover, even if a user has centrally stored data, the user needs the correct type of device running the appropriate application program to access that data. For example, a user with a PDA that maintains a user's schedule (e.g., appointments, meetings and so on) with a simple to-do list application program ordinarily will not be able to use that program to open a calendar stored by an email application program or the like at work. In general, this is because the data is formatted and accessed according to the way the application program wants it to be formatted.
  • [0007]
    What is needed is a model wherein data is centrally stored for users, with a set of services that control access to the data with defined methods, regardless of the application program and/or device.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0008]
    Briefly, the present invention provides a Wallet service (.NET Wallet, or myW) for centralized (e.g., Internet) access to per-user financial data, based on each user's identity, wherein the Wallet service includes a schema that defines rules and a structure for the data, and also includes methods that provide access to the data in a defined way. Because the structure of the data is defined from the perspective of the data, not from that of an application program or a device, programs can communicate with the services to access the data, with existing knowledge of the format. In one implementation, the Wallet schemas are arranged to provide XML documents, and the services provide methods that control access to the data based on the requesting user's identification, defined role and scope for that role. In this way, data can be accessed by its owner, and shared to an extent determined by the owner. Extensibility is defined into the schema.

By way of example only, FIG. 1 illustrates a hard disk drive 141 that reads from or writes to non-removable, nonvolatile magnetic media, a magnetic disk drive 151 that reads from or writes to a removable, nonvolatile magnetic disk 152, and an optical disk drive 155 that reads from or writes to a removable, nonvolatile optical disk 156 such as a CD ROM or other optical media. Other removable/non-removable, volatile/nonvolatile computer storage media that can be used in the exemplary operating environment include, but are not limited to, magnetic tape cassettes, flash memory cards, digital versatile disks, digital video tape, solid state RAM, solid state ROM, and the like. The hard disk drive 141 is typically connected to the system bus 121 through a non-removable memory interface such as interface 140, and magnetic disk drive 151 and optical disk drive 155 are typically connected to the system bus 121 by a removable memory interface, such as interface 150.
  • [0022]
    The drives and their associated computer storage media, discussed above and illustrated in FIG. 1, provide storage of computer-readable instructions, data structures, program modules and other data for the computer 110. In FIG. 1, for example, hard disk drive 141 is illustrated as storing operating system 144, application programs 145, other program modules 146 and program data 147. Note that these components can either be the same as or different from operating system 134, application programs 135, other program modules 136, and program data 137 Operating system 144, application programs 145, other program modules 146, and program data 147 are given different numbers herein to illustrate that, at a minimum, they are different copies. A user may enter commands and information into the computer 20 through input devices such as a tablet, or electronic digitizer, 164, a microphone 163, a keyboard 162 and pointing device 161, commonly referred to as mouse, trackball or touch pad. Other input devices not shown in FIG. 1 may include a joystick, game pad, satellite dish, scanner, or the like. These and other input devices are often connected to the processing unit 120 through a user input interface 160 that is coupled to the system bus, but may be connected by other interface and bus structures, such as a parallel port, game port or a universal serial bus (USB) A monitor 191 or other type of display device is also connected to the system bus 121 via an interface, such as a video interface 190. The monitor 191 may also be integrated with a touch-screen panel or the like. Note that the monitor and/or touch screen panel can be physically coupled to a housing in which the computing device 110 is incorporated, such as in a tablet-type personal computer. In addition, computers such as the computing device 110 may also include other peripheral output devices such as speakers 195 and printer 196, which may be connected through an output peripheral interface 194 or the like.
  • [0023]
    The computer 110 may operate in a networked environment using logical connections to one or more remote computers, such as a remote computer 180. The remote computer 180 may be a personal computer, a server, a router, a network PC, a peer device or other common network node, and typically includes many or all of the elements described above relative to the computer 110, although only a memory storage device 181 has been illustrated in FIG. 1. The logical connections depicted in FIG. 1 include a local area network (LAN) 171 and a wide area network (WAN) 173, but may also include other networks. Such networking environments are commonplace in offices, enterprise-wide computer networks, intranets and the Internet. For example, in the present invention, the computer system 110 may comprise source machine from which data is being migrated, and the remote computer 180 may comprise the destination machine. Note however that source and destination machines need not be connected by a network or any other means, but instead, data may be migrated via any media capable of being written by the source platform and read by the destination platform or platforms.
  • [0024]
    When used in a LAN networking environment, the computer 110 is connected to the LAN 171 through a network interface or adapter 170. When used in a WAN networking environment, the computer 110 typically includes a modem 172 or other means for establishing communications over the WAN 173, such as the Internet. The modem 172, which may be internal or external, may be connected to the system bus 121 via the user input interface 160 or other appropriate mechanism. In a networked environment, program modules depicted relative to the computer 110, or portions thereof, may be stored in the remote memory storage device. By way of example, and not limitation, FIG. 1 illustrates remote application programs 185 as residing on memory device 181. It will be appreciated that the network connections shown are exemplary and other means of establishing a communications link between the computers may be used.

    Data Access Model
  • [0026]
    The present invention generally operates in an architecture/platform that connects network-based (e.g., Internet-based) applications, devices and services, and transforms them into a user's personal network which works on the user's behalf, and with permissions granted by the user. To this end, the present invention is generally directed to schema-based services that maintain user, group, corporate or other entity data in a commonly accessible virtual location, such as the Internet. The present invention is intended to scale to millions of users, and be stored reliably, and thus it is likely that a user's data will be distributed among and/or replicated to numerous storage devices, such as controlled via a server federation. As such, while the present invention will be generally described with respect to an identity-centric model that enables a user with an appropriate identity and credentials to access data by communicating with various core or other services, it is understood that the schema-based services described herein are arranged for handling the data of millions of users, sorted on a per-user-identity basis. Note that while “user” is generally employed herein for simplicity, as used herein the term “user” is really a substitute for any identity, which may be a user, a group, another entity, an event, a project, and so on.
  • [0027]
    As generally represented in FIG. 2, a data access model 200 includes a generic navigation module 202 through which applications 204 and the like may access a wide variety of identity-based data, such as maintained in an addressable store 206. To access the data, a common set of command methods may be used to perform operations on various data structures that are constructed from the data in the addressable store 206, even though each of those data structures may represent different data and be organized quite differently. Such command methods may describe generic operations that may be desired on a wide variety of data structures, and include, for example, insert, delete, replace, update, query or changequery methods.
  • [0028]
    In accordance with one aspect of the present invention and as described in detail below, the data is accessed according to various schemas, with the schemas corresponding to identity-based services through which users access their data. As used herein, a “schema” generally comprises a set of rules that define how a data structure may be organized, e.g., what elements are supported, in what order they appear, how many times they appear, and so on. In addition, a schema may define, via color-coding or other identification mechanisms, what portions of an XML document (that corresponds to the data structure) may be operated on. Examples of such XML-based documents are described below. The schema may also define how the structure of the XML document may be extended to include elements not expressly mentioned in the schema.
  • [0029]
    As will be understood below, the schemas vary depending on the type of data they are intended to organize, e.g., an email-inbox-related schema organizes data differently from a schema that organizes a user's favorite websites. Further, the services that employ schemas may vary. As such, the generic navigation module 202 has associated therewith a navigation assistance module 208 that includes or is otherwise associated with one or more schemas 210. As will be understood, a navigation assistance module 208 as represented in FIG. 2 corresponds to one or more services, and possesses the information that defines how to navigate through the various data structures, and may also indicate which command methods may be executed on what portions of the data structure. Although in FIG. 2 only one navigation assistance module 208 is shown coupled to the generic navigation module 202, there may be multiple navigation assistance modules that may each specialize as desired. For example, each navigation assistance module may correspond to one service. Moreover, although the navigation assistance module 208 is illustrated as a separate module, some or all of the operations of the navigation assistance module 208 may be incorporated into the generic navigation module 202, and vice versa. In one embodiment, the various data structures constructed from the schema and addressable store data may comprise XML documents of various XML classes. In that case, the navigation assistance module 208 may contain a schema associated with each of the classes of XML documents.
  • [0030]
    The present invention provides a number of schema-based services that facilitate data access based on the identity of a user. Preferably, the user need not obtain a separate identity for each service, but rather obtains a single identity via a single set of credentials, such as with the Microsoft® Passport online service. With such an identity, a user can access data via these services from virtually any network connectable device capable of running an application that can call the methods of a service.
  • [0031]
    Services and Schemas
  • [0032]
    “.NET My Services” comprises identity-centric services which may be generally implemented in XML (extensible Markup Language) Message Interfaces (XMIs). While the present invention will be described with respect to XML and XMI, it can readily be appreciated that the present invention is not limited to any particular language or set of interfaces. The NET My Services model essentially corresponds to one implementation of the generic data access model 200 of FIG. 2.
  • [0033]
    As generally represented in FIG. 3, .NET My Services 300 is implemented as a set of Web services 301-316, each bound to a .NET Identity (PUID, such as a Passport® unique identifier similar to a globally unique identifier when Passport® is the authentication service). The services 301-316 can communicate with one another via a service-to-service communications protocol (SSCP), described below. As also described below, each service presents itself as a set of XML documents that can be manipulated from an application program 202 (FIG. 2) or the like using a set of standard methods and domain-specific methods. To this end, a user device 320 (endpoint) running such application programs connects a user's applications to the services, and the data controlled by those services, such as over the Internet or an Intranet, such as over the Internet or an Intranet. Note that endpoints can be client devices, applications or services. In keeping with the present invention, virtually any device capable of executing software and connecting to a network in any means may thus give a user access to data that the user is allowed to access, such as the user's own data, or data that a friend or colleague has specified as being accessible to that particular user.
  • [0034]
    In general, a .NET Identity is an identifier assigned to an individual, a group of individuals, or some form of organization or project. Using this identifier, services bound to that identity can be located and manipulated. A general effect is that each identity (e.g., of a user, group or organization) has tied to it a set of services that are partitioned along schema boundaries and across different identities. As will be understood, the XML-document-centric architecture of .NET My Services provides a model for manipulating and communicating service state that is very different from prior data access models. The XML-document-centric approach, in conjunction with loose binding to the data exposed by the services, enables new classes of application programs. As will also be understood, the .NET My Services model 300 presents the various services 301-316 using a uniform and consistent service and method model, a uniform and consistent data access and manipulation model, and a uniform and consistent security authorization model.
  • [0035]
    In a preferred implementation, the .NET My Services model 300 is based upon open Internet standards. Services are accessed by means of SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) messages containing an XML payload. Service input and output is expressed as XML document outlines, and each of these document outlines conform to an XML schema document. The content is available to a user interacting with the .NET My Services service endpoint 320.
  • [0036]
    Turning to FIG. 4, in the .NET My Services model, an application 400 requests performance of a method that operates on data structures. The application may make a request that is generic with respect to the type of data structure being operated upon and without requiring dedicated executable code for manipulating data structures of any particular data type. To this end, in one implementation the application first contacts a special myServices service 314 to obtain the information needed to communicate with a particular service 404, through a set of methods 406 of that service 404. For example, the needed information received from the myServices service 314 includes a URI of that service 404. Note that the service 404 may correspond to essentially any of the services represented in FIG. 3, such as the myWallet service 315.
  • [0037]
    In an alternate implementation, the services and data may be available on an intranet or the like. In such an event, it may be unnecessary to use the myServices service 314, e.g., if the URI of the desired services are fixed for any user of the intranet. Notwithstanding, a more flexible approach with an intranet may be to have the myServices service that simply provides an intranet URI, such as from a simple lookup table, whereby an administrator and the applications would not be bound to anything fixed.
  • [0038]
    The service 404 includes or is otherwise associated with a set of methods 406 including standard methods 408, such as to handle requests directed to insert, delete, replace, update, query or changequery operations on the data. The set of methods of a particular service may also include service specific methods 410. In general, the only way in which an application can communicate with a service are via that service's methods.
  • [0039]
    Each service includes service logic 412 for handling requests and providing suitable responses. To this end, the service logic performs various functions such as authorization, authentication, and signature validation, and further limits valid users to only the data which they are permitted to access. The security aspect of a service is not discussed herein, except to note that in general, for otherwise valid users, the user's identity determines whether a user can access data in a requested manner. To this end, a roleMap 414 comprising service-wide roleList document templates 415 and scopes (e.g., part of the overall service's schema 416), in conjunction with user-based data maintained in an addressable store 418, determines whether a particular requested method is allowed, e.g., by forming an identity-based roleList document 420. If a method is allowed, the scope information in the roleMap 414 determines a shape of data to return, e.g., how much content is allowed to be accessed for this particular user for this particular request. The content is obtained in accordance with a content document 422 in the service's schema 416 and the actual user data corresponding to that content document in the addressable store 418. In this manner, a per-identity shaped content document 424 is essentially constructed for returning to the user, or for updating the addressable store, as appropriate for the method. Note that FIG. 4 includes a number of ID-based roleList documents and ID-based content documents, to emphasize that the service 406 is arranged to serve multiple users. Also, in FIG. 4, a system document 426 is present as part of the schema 416, as described below.
  • [0040]
    Returning to FIG. 3, in one implementation, access to .NET My Services 300 is accomplished using SOAP messages formatted with .NET My Services-specific header and body content. Each of the .NET My Services will accept these messages by means of an HTTP POST operation, and generate a response by “piggy-backing” on the HTTP Response, or by issuing an HTTP POST to a .NET My Services response-processing endpoint 320. In addition to HTTP as the message transfer protocol, .NET My Services will support raw SOAP over TCP, a transfer protocol known as Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (or DIME). Other protocols for transferring messages are feasible.
  • [0041]
    Because .NET My Services are accessed by protocol, no particular client-side binding code, object models, API layers, or equivalents are required, and are thus optional. The .NET My Services will support Web Services Description Language (WSDL). It is not mandatory that applications wishing to interact with .NET My Services make use of any particular bindings, and such bindings are not described herein. Instead, the present invention will be generally described in terms of messages that flow between requestors of a particular service and the service endpoints. In order to interact with .NET My Services, a service needs to format a .NET My Services message and deliver that message to a .NET My Services endpoint. In order to format a message, a client needs to manipulate XML document outlines, and typically perform some simple, known (public-domain) cryptographic operations on portions of the message.
  • [0042]
    In accordance with one aspect of the present invention, and as described in FIG. 4 and below, in one preferred implementation, services (including the myWallet service 315) present three logical XML documents, a content document 422, roleList document 415 (of the roleMap 414), and a system document 426. These documents are addressable using .NET My Services message headers, and are manipulated using standard .NET My Services methods. In addition to these common methods, each service may include additional domain-specific methods, such as updateNotificationData.
  • [0043]
    Each .NET MyServices service thus logically includes a content document 422, which in general is the main, service-specific document. The schema for this document 422 is a function of the class of service, as will become apparent from the description of the myWallet service's content document below. For example, in the case of the myWallet service 315, the content document presents data in the shape dictated by the .NET My Services MyWallet schema, whereas in the case of the “.NET FavoriteWebSites” service 308, the content document presents data in the shape dictated by a .NET myFavoriteWebSites schema.
  • [0044]
    Each service also includes a roleList document 415 that contains roleList information, comprising information that governs access to the data and methods exported by the service 404. The roleList document is manipulated using the .NET My Services standard data manipulation mechanisms The shape of this document is governed by the .NET My Services core schema's roleListType XML data type.
  • [0045]
    Each service also includes a system document 426, which contains service-specific system data such as the roleMap, schemaMap, messageMap, version information, and service specific global data. The document is manipulated using the standard .NET data manipulation mechanism, although modifications are limited in a way that allows only the service itself to modify the document. The shape of this system document 426 may be governed by the system document schema for the particular service, in that each service may extend a base system document type with service specific information.
  • [0046]
    As is understood, the present invention is generally based on schemas, which in general comprise a set of rules or standards that define how a particular type of data can be structured. Via the schemas, the meaning of data, rather than just the data itself, may be communicated between computer systems. For example, a computer device may recognize that a data structure that follows a particular address schema represents an address, enabling the computer to “understand” the component part of an address. The computer device may then perform intelligent actions based on the understanding that the data structure represents an address. Such actions may include, for example, the presentation of an action menu to the user that represents things to do with addresses. Schemas may be stored locally on a device and/or globally in a federation's “mega-store.” A device can keep a locally-stored schema updated by subscribing to an event notification service (in this case, a schema update service) that automatically passes messages to the device when the schema is updated. Access to globally stored schemas is controlled by the security infrastructure.
  • [0047]
    General Schema Commonality
  • [0048]
    The .NET My Services data is defined using annotated XSD schema files. The XSD files accurately type the data, but since XSD is a verbose and complex language, it is not a particularly efficient way to convey structure and meaning. Thus, for purposes of simplicity herein, the myWallet schemas are described below in terms of schema outlines with accompanying element/attribute descriptions. These document outlines accurately show the structure of the data contained within a service. However, because the present application is not viewable in color, the nodes, elements and/or attributes of the schema outlines (which may be described as bold blue, or blue), are represented in the schema outlines as boldface type. Those described as underlined red, or red, are represented as underlined type, while others referred to as black are represented in normal type.
  • [0049]
    The meaning of these bold (blue), underlined (red) and normal (black) items has significance with respect to the data model and to the data language that accesses and manipulates the data (e.g., via the insert, delete, replace, update, query, changequery or other methods). For example, each document described below contains a root element having an element name that matches that of the service, e.g., the myWallet service has a root element named myWallet. The .NET My Services name for this item is the root.
  • [0050]
    Documents contain elements that resemble first-class top-level objects, including, for example, <catDef/>, <myApplicationsSettings/> (other another name as appropriate) and <order/>. Such items are denoted in the outlines as bold (blue), and may be identified using an <xdb:blue/> tag. Bold (blue) items define major blocks of data within a service. These node sets are directly addressable by an identifier attribute, and their change status is tracked through a changeNumber attribute. Top-level bold blue items may be considered objects. As seen below, some bold (blue) objects contain nested bold blue objects. They usually contain frequently changing underlined (red) properties, which reduces the amount of synchronization traffic. Nested bold (blue) items may be considered property groups.
  • [0051]
    Each bold blue item contains one or more underlined (red) items which are elements or attributes. These items may be identified using the <xdb:red/> tag. These items are special in that they may be used within predicates (filters) to aid in xdb:bold blue selection. These items are also directly addressable and may be manipulated directly by the data manipulation language.
  • [0052]
    Each underlined (colored red) element may contain one or more non-colorized elements and attributes, which are valid and semantically meaningful XML items in the service document. Such items are opaque to the data language. These uncolored (i.e., non-bold or underlined) elements and attributes may not be addressed directly, may not be selected in a node selection operation, and may not be used in a predicate node test. Note that if one of these items is in the path to an underlined red item, it may be used in a location step to the underlined red item, but may not be used as the selected node. Note that being opaque does not mean that the item is not considered during schema validation, but rather means that the item may not be used in a predicate, may not be directly addressed, and may not be inserted by itself As can be readily appreciated, in this manner, the .NET My Services thus limits the granularity of access to nodes within the service document, since only xdb:bold blue and xdb:underlined red marked items are directly addressable, and only those elements and attributes tagged with the xdb:underlined red annotation may be used in predicates to influence node selection. Using this technique, the .NET My Services storage system can efficiently manage indexes, increase the performance of node selection, partially shred the document data, and in general (because the node selections are well defined) fine-tune the node selection logic on a per-xdb:blue basis. The primary purpose of the xdb:blue is to define a base-level XML object that is designed to be operated on as a unit. The primary purpose of the xdb:red items is to aid in the selection of xdb:bold blues. The xdb:red items may be changed by the data language primitives so some level of fine-grained manipulation of the data is available, but only in very limited ways.
  • [0053]
    Bold blue items have unique IDs, which are usually assigned by .NET My Services, and are returned from update operations within the new blueId node. In all cases, the order of xxxBold blue follows the pre-order traversal of the document XML tree. Item IDs are UUIDs in the following format (h stands for a hexadecimal digit): hhhhhhhh-hhhh-hhhh-hhhh-hhhhhhhhhhhh.
  • [0054]
    In addition to identifiers, names and change numbers, nodes and especially red nodes may include creator identifiers, category information, and {any} fields. Category information enables data to be grouped and/or distinguished in some way, such as to share certain calendar information with golf buddies, send an email to immediately family, designate things such as which telephone number is the user's primary number, e.g., if a user has a second home, and so on. Fields of type “any” may comprise fully-typed, namespace-qualified fields that contain any type of content (e.g., free-form XML) therein. Such “any” fields thus allow extensibility of the schema, yet maintain the defined structure of a schema.
  • [0055]
    In one implementation, the core data-manipulation language implemented by the .NET My Services includes an insertRequest, or insert message. This primitive inserts any schema-valid XML fragment into a selected context, thereby changing the existing state of the document. A queryRequest, or message, retrieves data, such as to retrieve a document. Multiple queries may be specified in one request, and queries that select nothing are considered successful. It is possible to assert that the number of nodes in the selection falls in a given range. This is expressed using minOccurs and maxOccurs attributes. If a minOccurs/maxOccurs test fails on any node, the request is considered unsuccessful. Note that this is different from a failure code, which would be returned, for example, for a malformed request.
  • [0056]
    A deleteRequest primitive deletes the selected nodes and all their children. Note that, just like for other requests, attributes may be selected as well as elements. Empty selections result in successful operations, similar to Query. The minOccurs/maxOccurs tests are supported wherever select is allowed.
  • [0057]
    A replaceRequest primitive (replace message) is designed to replace the content of each of the selected nodes with the specified new content. Selected nodes themselves are not affected in any way. This may be considered as an atomic delete of the content of the selected node, followed by an insert. The content (text, attributes, elements) in the selected nodes are replaced with the new item specified in this message. The node type of the selected node and of the replacement node are thus required to be the same. The changequery request essentially returns result comprising data that has changed.
  • [0058]
    As mentioned above, each of the services includes a RoleList document and scope information that describes which users have what type of access to which data. For example, a data owner will have read/write access to his or her own data, and can provide various types of rights to that data to other users based on their IDs, (e.g., read only to some users, read write to others). Each role list identifier may be associated with a scope, by which the kinds of data stored according to a given schema can be controlled per user. For example, a user can give a friend (with one identity) access via a service to a home telephone number, home address and so forth, but can give other users (with other identities) access only to a business telephone number. In general, a scope can be defined such that that it includes everything except any specifically listed items, or excludes everything except any specifically listed items.
  • [0059]
    .NET Wallet (myWallet) Service
  • [0060]
    The .NET Wallet service, generally referred to as myWallet, is designed to store and manage an identity-defined user's financial-related information, such as credit and debit card information, bank account information, and the like, and thus provides an electronic wallet for users. To this end, the myWallet service uses an XML schema to describe payment instruments in a user's wallet and the methods by which a payment instrument is stored and manipulated in the store. The methods and access rights that allow for the manipulation of contents in a user's wallet by different role type.
  • [0061]
    For example, in addition to the XML schema for wallet content, the .NET Wallet service provides, under the user's control, the ability for data access by a merchant on behalf of a user. The myWallet service accomplishes this via a query only method for a merchant to view the payment instrument to which a user has granted access. As another example, access by a financial issuer on behalf of a user is allowed, whereby a financial issuer may manage the payment instruments that are issued by this issuer (e.g. the credit card issuer), provided that the user has granted the issuer such access right. For example, a financial issuer may manage certain aspects of wallet content on behalf of a user, such as to update the expiration date of a card, change the billing address when a user is moved and notified his or her bank, change the bank routing number when the bank is merged, and so forth.
  • [0062]
    To increase security and data privacy, the key elements of a wallet (e.g. credit card number) may be encrypted using a key or password that only the user knows. By doing so, even if a user's account is compromised, the key data in wallet is still protected and non-usable.
  • [0063]
    The myWallet service is thus directed to payment instrument information, which comprises a payment method that the entity will use to pay, including card based payment instruments like credit cards and debit cards, and account based payment instruments, such as traditional checking accounts and savings accounts, or any non-traditional account that allows a user to accumulate charges and be billed on a regular basis, such as a telephone bill.
  • [0064]
    In keeping with the present invention, the .NET Wallet service supplies such information on demand to appropriate Net-based services, applications or devices. To this end, the .NET Wallet service uses .NET My Services to support a rich sharing model based on the access control list, role map, and identity header.
  • [0065]
    The .NET Wallet service exposes the changeNotify method to be used on the .NET Wallet element only. When such an operation occurs on the .NET Wallet with a pending changeNotify request outstanding, a notification will be sent to the subscriber via the .NET Alerts service.
  • [0066]
    myWallet/Roles
  • [0067]
    As with other services, the myWallet service controls data access by using the rt0, rt1, rt2, rt3 and rt99 roleTemplates, using the following scopes:
    scope allElements
    <hs:scope id=7215df55-e4af-449f-a8e4-72a1f7c6a987>

    The meaning of the attributes and elements shown in the preceding sample document outline follow, beginning with /system (minOccurs=1 maxOccurs=1), the element that encapsulates a system document common to the various services. Although each service has its own system document, the common system document attributes and elements are described once, for purposes of simplicity, with service-specific system document attributes and elements specified for each service, below. The /system/@changeNumber (minOccurs=0 maxOccurs=1) attribute is designed to facilitate caching of the element and its descendants. This attribute is assigned to this element by the .NET My Services system. The attribute is read-only to applications. Attempts to write this attribute are silently ignored.
  • [0126]
    The /system/@instanceId (string minOccurs=0 maxOccurs=1) attribute is a unique identifier typically assigned to the root element of a service. It is a read-only element and assigned by the .NET My Services system when a user is provisioned for a particular service.
  • [0127]
    The /system/systemVersion (minOccurs=1 maxOccurs=1) element defines version information describing this instance of the .NET MyServices service. The /systemVersion/@changeNumber (minOccurs=0 maxOccurs=1) changeNumber attribute is designed to facilitate caching of the element and its descendants. This attribute is assigned to this element by the .NET My Services system.

  • [0136]
    The /system/roleMap/scope/shape (minOccurs=1 maxOccurs=1) comprises a shape that defines the node set that is visible through the document when operating through this shape element. The /system/roleMap/scope/shape/@base (string minOccurs=0 maxOccurs=1) attribute specifies the initial set of nodes visible through the shape. A value of t indicates that the shape is initialized to include all possible nodes relative to the shape that is currently in effect. For instance, each role defines a scope containing a shape. When defining a shape for a role, the value t indicates all possible nodes available in the specified document for this role. When defining a shape in an ACL entry, a value of t means all of the nodes visible in the shape for the computed role. When using a shape in a data language (e.g., query, insert, replace and so on) operation, a value of t indicates all of the possible nodes selected by the data language operation (relative to the ACL shape which itself is relative to the role's shape). The value nil indicates the opposite of t, which is the empty node set. Nodes from this set may then be included into the shape.
  • [0137]
    The /system/roleMap/scope/shape/include (minOccurs=0 maxOccurs=unbounded) element specifies the set of nodes that should be included into the shape relative to the possible set of nodes indicated by the base attribute.
