Original design goals for the CardSync Service:

  1. Support a RESTful interface (not SOAP)
  2. Only use protocols and technologies that are available royalty-free and are well documented
  3. Be compatible with selectors that support N>1 card stores
  4. Allow a selector to work completely offline
  5. Support bi-directional synchronization of individual cards and individual metadata entries about these cards
  6. Support strong authentication from client (selector) to CardSync Service
