Name of idea
Impact of HTTP2
This idea is (CHOOSE ONE):
- A trend in information technology that requires new standardizations (e.g. cloud computing, social networking, a search platform, a gaming platform)
One Hundred Word Description of the Idea
The IETF is defining HTTP2. Proponents point out that the improved architecture will have far greater performance, and we can build stronger security requirements into it. Mark Nottingham has argued (at TPAC) that this is important to the Web. But we have not explored that impact. What aspects of Web architecture need to be made more efficient to leverage HTTP2? How do we build security into the Web layer? What new applications will be developed?
Benefit(s) to Web or W3C
The Web will have better performance, new applications, and better security. W3C will be at the leading edge of thoughtful modification to web architecture.
Which of our stakeholders would be the most enthusiastic in supporting
IETF, Cisco, Akamai, Google, Huawei.
