The Web Bluetooth Community Group has been launched:
Bluetooth is a standard for short-range wireless communication between devices. This group is developing a specification for Bluetooth APIs to allow websites to communicate with devices in a secure and privacy-preserving way.
In particular the web Bluetooth API focuses on minimizing the device attack surface exposed to malicious websites, possibly by removing access to some existing Bluetooth features that are hard to implement securely. Further, the API takes the approach of a user interface to select and approve access to devices as opposed to using certification and installation.
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2014-07-30 by Jeffrey Yasskin. The following people supported its creation: Jeffrey Yasskin, Dominique Hazaël-Massieux, Vincent Scheib, Michael[tm] Smith, Mounir Lamouri. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of its activities.
We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on firstname.lastname@example.org
