ISSUE-182: We have lost the "secure page" definition [wsc-xit]


Raised by: Thomas Roessler
On product: wsc-xit

While merging in the rewritten TLS-related part, we seem to have lost the secure page definition. The last version of this definition is in the published working draft here:



This section is normative.

If a given Web page consists of a single resource only, then all content that the user interacts with has security properties derived from the HTTP transaction used to retrieve the content.

[Definition: A Web page is called TLS-secured if the top-level resource and all other resources that can affect or control the page's content and presentation have been retrieved through strongly TLS protected HTTP transactions.]

This definition implies that inline images, stylesheets, script content, and frame content for a secure page need to be retrieved through strongly TLS protected HTTP tansactions in order for the overall page to be considered TLS-secured.
