Call for Review: Web Cryptography API Proposed Recommendation Published

The W3C Web Cryptography is now a Proposed Recommendation. This specification describes a JavaScript API for performing basic cryptographic operations in web applications, such as hashing, signature generation and verification, and encryption and decryption. Additionally, it describes an API for applications to generate and/or manage the keying material necessary to perform these operations. Uses for this API range from user or service authentication, document or code signing, and the confidentiality and integrity of communications. Comments are welcome through 15 January 2017.
