The Web Cryptography API is a W3C Recommendation

   26 January 2017
   <https://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/6092>

   The Web Cryptography Working Group has published a W3C Recommendation of the "Web Cryptography API." This specification describes a JavaScript API for performing basic cryptographic operations in web applications, such as hashing, signature generation and verification, and encryption and decryption. Additionally, it describes an API for applications to generate and/or manage the keying material necessary to perform these operations. Uses for this API range from user or service authentication, document or code signing, and the confidentiality and integrity of communications.

XQuery 3.0: An XML Query Language provides queries but has no support for adding new values or changing existing values.
