Can you give us an update on ACTION-93 before the Aug 18 Media TF meeting when we will discuss EME topics?

Is there any change in the status of ACTION-93?

Some progress is being made. The essence of the problem is that HTTPS to home network web servers requires a sever HTTPS certificate that is in the client browser's trust store. Upcoming CAB Forum requirements will limit these types of certificates to hosts with FQDNs, which is not something home network hosts typically have. We are in the process of working with a CA to understand options and what impact, if any, these might have on browser requirements. Once that is completed, we'll know what action to take with WebAppSec.

Paul,

We're still assessing the specific issues regarding problems with HTTPS with home network devices. I don't have an update as to when we'll come to conclusions and submit a bug with the WebAppSec WG.

You previously responded on Jun 1 that your were doing some private work on this matter before contacting the WebAppSec WG.  Can you give us any update?
