Folks:

For better or for worse, web-based apps are likely to be the most
widely-used security-sensitive apps in the not too distant future.
We're trying to make it for better. Please help!

The Web Cryptography API working group (of the W3C) has posted this
working draft and is soliciting feedback. I imagine that the final
version of this specification will be implemented by all the major
browser vendors, as well as by other Javascript platforms such as
"node.js".

Thank you for your attention.
