My conclusion about ACTION-515 is that we shouldn't do the action ("publishing John Kemp's TAG work on security") but rather consider a different action, which is to draft a TAG security roadmap. I marked


as pending review.  Perhaps we can discuss a TAG security roadmap (and other roadmaps we might want to produce) at the F2F?

Another related document is, of course, the excellent Browser Security Handbook:

I'd recommend to review the existing documents first and to find out what exactly the TAG is trying to add to those.
