WebCrypto Key Discovery Note Published

   29 March 2016

   The Web Cryptography Working Group has published a Group Note of
   "WebCrypto Key Discovery." This note describes a JavaScript API
   for discovering named, origin-specific pre-provisioned
   cryptographic keys for use with the Web Cryptography API.
   Pre-provisioned keys are keys which have been made available to
   the UA by means other than the generation, derivation, importation
   and unwrapping functions of the Web Cryptography API.
   Origin-specific keys are keys that are available only to a
   specified origin. Named keys are identified by a name assumed to
   be known to the origin in question and provisioned with the key
   itself. This note concerns only keys which have all three of these


Call for Review: Battery Status API Proposed Recommendation Published

   29 March 2016

   The Device APIs Working Group has published a Proposed
   Recommendation of "Battery Status API." The Battery Status API
   specification defines a means for web developers to
   programmatically determine the battery status of the hosting
   device. Without knowing the battery status of a device, a web
   developer must design the web application with an assumption of
   sufficient battery level for the task at hand. This means the
   battery of a device may exhaust faster than desired because web
   developers are unable to make decisions based on the battery
   status. This specification defines an API that provides
   information about the battery status of the hosting device.
   Comments are welcome through 29 April.
