Hello,

as another area that, as an outcome from the workshop, looks
like it might be a good candidate for future work, I'd like to
ask for your feed-back on Secure Metadata.

The basic question that this work would be asked to answer
would be: What can content providers expect browsers to display
in terms of metadata?  And how can these metadata be secured
against faking?

There appear to be several possible routes that this work could
take, including, on the simple side, an agreement and
recommendation to display logotype certificate attribute; on
the more complex end of the scale, this work could also look at
formats for complex trustmark-like objects, and a
recommendation to display these in the browser chrome.

Your thoughts would be most welcome.

Regards,
