Hi All, Francois,

The Charter notes [1]:


The specifications produced by this Working Group will include security and privacy considerations.


We should add the Security and privacy considerations section to the Presentation API once we're better aware of the threats.

Francois - what is the stage at which this is required?

Privacy Interest Group (PING) has produced some documentation that may be helpful, namely Fingerprinting Guidance for Web Specification Authors [1] and Privacy Considerations for Web Protocols [2].

We can ask PING review our work at a later stage, and craft the section based on their input. They've been usually helpful in providing concrete input.

Tracked as a GitHub issue #45 [4].
