Body
The IETF Security Area thanks ITU-T study group 17 for the opportunity to
comment on the proposed new work item, X.websec-5. There are numerous related
activities to this work, including the work of the following IETF working
groups in the Applications and Security areas:

·      Web Security (websec)
·      Web Authorization Protocol (oauth)
·      Transport Layer Security (tls)

 
We bring to your attention RFC-6454 "The Web Origin Concept",
draft-ietf-websec-frame-options, as well as 
draft-ietf-websec-x-frame-options, each of which looks at improving overall
web security of which mashups are classed.

In addition, we are aware of a considerable amount of effort in this area in
the W3C.

As always, we welcome participation in discussions about IETF protocols
through our mailing lists, websec@ietf.org, oauth@ietf.org, and tls@ietf.org.
