----- agenda 21 May 2012 ------

1- Welcome 
- attendees list
- news from new members
-  minutes from previous call  http://www.w3.org/2012/05/14-crypto-minutes.html 

2- Primary usecases
- presenting David D survey
- call to contributions

3- draft API technical discussion (editors)

A) algorithm to be supported by the API
See proposal http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webcrypto/2012May/0066.html and comments http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webcrypto/2012May/0090.html

Clarifying the interaction with http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Crypto 
Existing implementations : Gecko, Opera, 
Discussing about the support (and indication) of "cryptographically secure PRNG"

D) key isolation and key 
Discussing about the need for key isolation (is the key available to the JS, yes or no ?)
Discussing about the key timelife - See strawman proposal sent by Ryan Sleevi - Google http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webcrypto/2012May/0052.html

Subject: [Web Crypto WG] - our next conf call focus

Dear all,

A short summary of what we may have to address during our next call : 

* We have a big issue to solve about the level of our API. Will it be low level, medium level or high level ? And this might be solved by writing down the usecases and functional requirements as David, Richard and Mitch kindly volunteered to do. So we will spend time reviewing the draft produced (no pressure, guys ;-). 

* We also had some discussions last week on the mailing list, that I have briefly listed in the provisional agenda (extract re-copied and paste below for your convenience), which are not directly linked to this problem of API level - unless I missed something. For those one, I would like to open emails discussions (with separate mail thread) so that we progress and potentially make decision. For each of them, I'll try to summarize the situation and will expect you to react if you want to reshape the proposal. In case we do not come to conclusion (which I am expecting :-), we will discuss this in our next call and start using the issue tracker to keep track of our open points. 

Feel free also in the meantime to raise on the mailing list any new concern you may have with the current editor's draft http://www.w3.org/2012/webcrypto/WebCryptoAPI/. 


A) level of the API (low level, medium level or high level) See discussion raised with Ryan Sleevi from Google and David Dahl from Mozilla http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webcrypto/2012May/0039.html 
B) algorithms to be supported by the API See information sent by Mike Johns - Microsoft http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webcrypto/2012May/0034.html
See question on TLS raised by Eric Rescorla http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webcrypto/2012May/0041.html  

C) algorithm discovery mechanism 

D) handling the keys (management by identifiers)

E) types of key lifetime depending on usecases See strawman proposal sent by Ryan Sleevi - Google http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webcrypto/2012May/0052.html

If you see any errors, do tell me - this meeting was a bit more tricky than usual due to Zakim being not functional.
