Charter for Working Group

The goal of the Web Transaction Security Working Group is to develop
requirements and a specification for the provision of security services
to Web transaction, e.g., transactions using HyperText Transport
(HTTP). This work will proceed in parallel to and independently of the
development of non-security features in the HTTP Working Group. The
working group will prepare two documents for submission as Internet
Drafts; an HTTP Security Requirements Specification, and an HTTP
Security Protocol Specification. The latter will be submitted as a
Standards Track RFC.
