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 Protocol (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.
HTTP Security Specification finalized at the Dallas IETF, submit to IESG for consideration as a Proposed Standard.
HTTP Security Requirements finalized at the Stockholm IETF. Submit HTTP Security Specification proposal(s) as Internet-Drafts.
HTTP Security Requirements submitted as Internet-Draft.
