To: HTTP Working Group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>
The "Security Considerations" section of "HTTP/1.1, part 7:
Authentication" should mention that the mechanism is vulnerable to
Confused Deputy attacks such as Cross-Site-Request-Forgery (CSRF) and
clickjacking. Is someone working on text for this, or should I propose
some?

See:
