RE: Web Security IG - a proposal of actions

Anders, Mete, and all,

I guess that the security analysis of web app on mobile, should address the entire life cycles of the webapps, meaning :
- app design (including functions made available to the developers)
- app packaging
- app deployment/update
- app usage (include the user granted rights)
My view is that the hardware component assumptions will only be a part of the problem.

We have here a reasonable number of ideas to open a wiki and start listing the perceived/existing problems... Will land in few days in our wiki [yes, we even have a wiki :)]

Any other idea to load our homework ?

Hi Mete,

This should be of interest:

A question arises: Can you actually abstract a security element API and still maintain end-to-end security?
