W3C wades in on browser security


The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is taking a swing at the security problem that's on everybody's mind these days: Web browser security. In a statement, the group said that its new initiative, dubbed The Secure Browsing Initiative, would seek to build a foundation for a "more secure Web" and "help people make proper trust decisions." Director Tim Berners-Lee (who invented the Web, after all) was quoted saying:

"There is much deployed and proven security technology, but we now need to connect it all the way through to the Web user. A Web browser acts on my behalf as I surf the Web, and I need more help from it to avoid being spoofed."
