Hi All,

For those interested, it appears Javascript is getting cryptography.
The Web Cryptography Working Group looks well organized, provides a
very good roadmap, and offers good documentation.
http://www.w3.org/2012/webcrypto/.

There is a list of use cases at
http://www.w3.org/TR/WebCryptoAPI/#use-cases. I believe there are some
missing use cases, and those missing use cases could identify gaps in
the API. If anyone has feedback from a security architecture point
view, I think it would be appreciated.

There are also a few open issues that could probably benefit from
comments by experienced crypto gurus.

Jeff
