Scenario: People interacting with other people on the basis of a token-based identifier or authenticator

Traditionally, this has mostly been relevant for professional interactions, when we present our business card to a new person. Another, more current example of people interacting with each other using a ‘smart’ token comes from the apps for smart phones, through which you can cruise your physical surroundings to see whether there are interesting people around: Grindr is, for instance, an app to find available gay men, Girls around Me is an app to find girls, and has already been called Stalker app. A particular variety of token based interaction between individuals is when QR codes with personalised information are put on on tomb stones giving visitors access to a personalised website with information about the deceased.
