Message-ID: <CAEeYn8g8qxuqDfWCwxuC1h9Cmi83eKcnpWQ7k+YvE_0ZUG2UXw@mail.gmail.com>

This email is to announce a Call for Consensus period for the Web
Application Security Working Group to publish a First Public Working Draft
of Confinement with Web Origin Labels (COWL) from the draft at:


COWL 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

This document has a number of open issues, but the editor and participants
of the 21-Sep teleconference believe it is sufficiently mature to publish
and solicit broader feedback as an FPWD.

This CfC will end on September 28th, 2015. All feedback is encouraged,
positive and otherwise.  Non-responses by WG members implies no objection
to the consensus to publish.  Please send feedback to

Thank you,

Brad Hill, co-chair
