A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol of the IETF.

        Title           : Deprecate modification of 'secure' cookies from non-secure origins
        Author          : Mike West
	Filename        : draft-ietf-httpbis-cookie-alone-00.txt
	Pages           : 5
	Date            : 2016-02-23

   This document updates RFC6265 by removing the ability for a non-
   secure origin to set cookies with a 'secure' flag, and to overwrite
   cookies whose 'secure' flag is set.  This deprecation improves the
   isolation between HTTP and HTTPS origins, and reduces the risk of
   malicious interference.
