A key point missing from the minutes is that platform-held secure keys were discussed as much as device-held keys.  These can be held in either in TPMs, TEEs, or other secure elements.  At a minimum, in the next steps, I would change “Hardware tokens in scope” to “Platform-held keys and hardware tokens in scope”.

I would also suggest describing the poll that I held that resulted in people unanimously agreeing that adding the ability to use platform-accessible secure keys (both platform-held and device-held keys) from the browser is a critical next step.

Sorry if I missed something, but the draft report is not on http://www.w3.org/2012/webcrypto/webcrypto-next-workshop/.

So I recommend people to read directly the wiki version you created here : https://www.w3.org/Security/wiki/Cryptoreport#DRAFT_Final_Report

Here's a DRAFT final report:


I'm missing slides from (possibly in inbox, but perhaps deleted them, just resend):

1) John Mattsson
2) Mike  Jones
3) Israel Hilerio

Just email them to me and I'll update.

I've also put a version in the wiki for easy editing/corrections. Email me if there's anything substantial that must be rewritten:


I'll be taking comments until next Monday, so we can publish the report on W3C's website before TPAC and have an official announcement.
