good idea. In Beijing I want to present some remarks regarding WoT security. A lot of organizations and experts define scopes for their outcomes. If you make an overlaying of all this scopes you can find gaps. I want to develop a holistic view of WoT/IoT security in some iterations. In front of Beijing I want to discuss this first draft with Oliver and members of this IG, which are interested in this theme. Hope you are on board.  Meanwhile I make some interviews with security experts outside W3C. After the final iteration we´ll have a complete view regarding WoT/IoT security. This complete view is much bigger than our WoT scope, but we know all interdependencies in this area. May be other W3C WG can benefit from this.
PS: Continuous improvement / Kaizen is a strong part of this approach, ´cause the world is evolving dynamically.

I agree that semantics and security are really vital for WoT. At the same time, we must keep in mind that WoT or IoT is highly interdisciplinary. Therefore, it would be good to create a best practices deliverable/document (showing guidelines for global interoperability) to attract the developers.

What do we need to do in the IG charter to make it easier to attract new members?  Before writing a pull request, it makes sense to first discuss this challenge and see what ideas emerge and where we have a rough consensus.

When talking with people in IoT alliances and other standards development organisations, I have seen that there is general agreement on the importance of semantic interoperability and security.  W3C is respected for its work on standards relating to RDF and linked data, and is expected to take the lead on enabling declarative domain models and constraints.

For security, so far each organisation has approached this independently. This risks problems for end to end security for services that span platforms specified by different organisations.  Without shared trust assumptions, parties will only be able to share data that is marked as being publicly accessible.  By focusing on inter-platform standards for the IoT, W3C has a mission to work with the IoT organisations to encourage alignment over trust assumptions for security and how to describe this in metadata.

We have very few people currently in the IG with the requisite experience. What do we need to do in the new IG charter to help attract such people?

Do you agree that semantics and security are critical to realising the potential for the Web of Things?

One idea would be to add explicit deliverables on semantic modelling and end to end security, what do you think?
