Liaisons referred by this one LS on security architecture and operations for web mashup services
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

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,,, and
