It was just brought to my attention that Mark Watson has proposed a session for the Technical Plenary day in Sapporo that is related to our ACTION-93.
ACTION-93: Get in touch with webappsec wg about the "privileged  context" which is more generic than saying https, etc."

Secure communication with local network devices
https://www.w3.org/wiki/TPAC2015/SessionIdeas#Secure_communication_with_local_network_devices

  *   Proposer: Mark Watson
  *   Leaders: Mark Watson
  *   Summary: Pages loaded in a secure context may wish to communication with local network devices (for example devices discovered using DIAL<http://dial-multiscreen.org/>). Such devices may not have DNS names or long-lived certificates chained to a public CA to enable the use of standard PKI. How can we secure such communication such that the security promises of the "green padlock" are maintained.
  *   Type: Brief presentation of the problem, open discussion
  *   Goals: Establish the problem as one that W3C might work on, identify venue(s) for further discussion
I want to encourage TF members to attend the Technical Plenary session (assuming it occurs) so that you are aware of the Technical Plenary day discussion.
