Hi Web Security IG,

Hope you all had great time since our last call on 18th of December.

You will find here a take away of our discussions, this does not replace the detailed minutes of the call which can be found under http://www.w3.org/2013/12/18-websec-minutes.html
People present : Andy (Verisign), Art (Nokia), Brad (Paypal, W3C WebAppSec co-chair), Christine (ISOC, W3C PING co-chair), Fan (Irdeto), Frederik (Nokia), ), Harry (W3C), Karen (ISOC, IETF), Larry (Adobe), Manu (digital bazaar), , Nick D (W3C), Nick V (Inventive Design), Virginie (gemalto, co-chair Web Security IG, W3C web crypto WG co-chair), Wendy (W3C).  Thanks to Manu and Nick D for scribing.

About what can be done by the IG, several ideas were expressed

-          Reviewing the specifications from W3C (aka HTML EME, Promise, Service Worker) and outside (HTTP Auth, Web RTC in IETF). Associate idea was to benchmark what is done in IETF review.

-          Building knowledge, by studying and explaining the interaction between the different technologies under discussion in W3C, IETF, FIDO, ...., by describing the web threat model, by sharing news

-          Building a larger security community (by liaising with other security focused groups like IETF websec, by having appropriate material explaining the IG objective and milestones, by facilitating IE status for security experts)

-          Influence the W3C process to facilitate a systemic security review (together with a privacy review)

Some interesting event

-          W3C and IAB are organizing a workshop on strengthening the web STRINT [1], presence is binded to an expression of interest. This workshop will be interesting to attend, to hear security gaps expressed by the participants, and possible W3C implication/topics of interest.

About the IG next steps

-          Revamp the wiki to reflect the possible action plan -> Virginie (but of course anyone can contribute to the wiki http://www.w3.org/Security/wiki/IG)

-          Schedule a call for January, arrange agenda -> Virginie, coming soon

-          Volunteers to lead specific effort -> all !

In the meantime, note that you can promote the revival of this IG and encourage people to come and see us.
