Clearly this rechartering request has triggered a lengthy discussion
about web authentication. However, the only comment on the charter
itself Stephen Farrell's noting that this bullet is a bit vague
(specifically that it does not mention authentication):
* Reflecting modern security requirements and practices
Stephen and I just had a chat about this matter. He and I came up with a
proposed paragraph to add after that list of bullet points:
In the initial phase of work on HTTP/2.0, new proposals
for authentication schemes can be made. The WG will
select zero or more of those with a goal of choosing
at least one scheme that is better than those available
for HTTP/1.x. Non-selected schemes might be discussed
with the IETF Security Area for further work there.
Your comments are welcome.
