Subject: FYI: RFC 7034 on HTTP Header Field X-Frame-Options

Hi, dear WebAppSec team,

just fyi: finally after a long time we released the informational RFC on X-Frame-Options, which only documents the current usage. As discussed before with the WG chairs, it refers to the work here in Webappsec in CSP1.1 for the future solution of XFO.

Cheers, Tobias
