Confinement with Origin Web Labels

http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-COWL-20151015/

Abstract

This specification defines an API for specifying privacy and integrity policies on data, in the form of origin labels, and a mechanism for confining code according to such policies. This allows Web application authors and server operators to shared data with untrusted—buggy but not malicious—code (e.g., in a mashup scenario) yet impose restrictions on how the code can share the data further.
