Security for Access to Device APIs from the Web: Workshop Report Published


The report from the recent W3C Workshop "Security for Access to Device  
APIs from the Web" [1]
is now available:

Participants identified the following areas of possible work as high  
priorities for the W3C:

- Declaration of APIs
- Policy Description for device APIs
- API patterns and standardization of concrete APIs

While some of this work likely fits into the charters of existing  
Working Groups, the
policy description item would likely require a new work effort.  We  
have set up
the mailing list (archive [2]) for follow-up

Thank you,
