Hi Oliver and others,

Thanks for compiling this catalogue. I have some initial comments:

1.      Maybe each requirements should have a number or any other id. That would make it easier in discussions and follow-up of requirements.
2.      The list does more look like a the Security&Privacy Glossary in more detail than a list of requirements. That might be ok depending what we want to achieve. Do we want this or do we want?
a.       A total and tangible list of the security&privacy features applicable for WoT that needs to be covered by W3C standards (existing and new), using MUST, SHOULD and MAY vocabulary?
b.      A tangible list of the security&privacy features applicable for WoT that needs to be standardized by W3C in addition to what exists today (or what is in progress being standardized), i.e. a gap list, using MUST, SHOULD and MAY vocabulary?

Subject: [IG-SP] Review of Security&Privacy Requirements Catalogue

Dear colleagues,
until now the Security&Privacy Requirements Catalogue<https://www.w3.org/WoT/IG/wiki/Security%26Privacy_Requirements_Catalogue> used to be a bit of a laundry list. That changed and now there is a first draft version for review.

Formally the Wiki page is public (as well as this mail) and we’d accept comments from anybody in WoT IG. However I would like to ask for review and feedback from [IG-SP] before sending heads-up notices to the TFs.

When reviewing, please check for:
•        Completeness: does the catalogue cover all requirements that we want to highlight (caveat: it should not become too lengthy, special interest items may have to be dropped to avoid the ‘TL;NR’ syndrome)?
•        Correctness: are the contents of the catalogue sufficiently sound (caveat: it should not become academic, becoming too nitty-gritty should be avoided)?
•        Comprehension: do the contents compile when reading through the catalogue with common sense, are the contents intuitively accessible?
•        Wording: which improvements are needed to pass the ‘native speaker check’?

I suggest a review/feedback period (within SP) until Aug, 12. Please provide suggestion and addition/change requests on the public mailing list or in a personal exchange (suggestions and addition/change requests that arrive thereafter will also be accommodated – this is not meant as a final call)

Please note that I will do a round of double-checking against the IIC reference architecture during this review/feedback period (=> there might be some [hopefully minor] updates)

Please also note that there will be some derivative work that will reflect the structure of the security&privacy requirements catalogue => adding (new) catalogue items later on will be easy, tweaking the structure will be tedious. So let’s put a priority on establishing a structure that has a good chance of staying stable

Kind regards,
