> Web Security Context: User Interface Guidelines
> W3C Recommendation 12 August 2010
>  http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/REC-wsc-ui-20100812/
> 
> ----------
> Abstract
> 
> This specification defines guidelines and requirements for the presentation and communication of Web security context information to end-users.
> 
> ------------------------------
> Status of this Document [non-boilerplate]
> 
> To frame its development of this specification, the Working Group had previously published a use case note [WSC-USECASES]. This specification addresses most of the use cases and issues documented in that note by documenting best existing practice, with the following exceptions:
> 
>    • This specification does not include advice for web site authors.
> 
>    • This specification does not provide advice to address the issue explained in sections 9.1.2 Visually extending the chrome and 9.2.7 Information bar (aka: notification bar).
> 
> Additionally, section 10.4 Implementation and testing of [WSC-USECASES] articulated an expectation that the recommendations in this specification would be subject to usability testing, at least on a low fidelity level, and that such testing would form part of the Candidate Recommendation exit criteria. Resources available to the Working Group at this point will not permit the group to conduct extensive usability testing. At the same time, the focus of this specification has shifted toward documenting best existing practice.
> 
> This document was developed by the Web Security Context Working Group. For a list of changes to this document since its Proposed Recommendation version, please refer to the diff document. All changes were editorial in nature.
> 
> Please send comments about this document to public-usable-authentication at w3.org (with public archive).
> 
> This document has been reviewed by W3C Members, by software developers, and by other W3C groups and interested parties, and is endorsed by the Director as a W3C Recommendation. It is a stable document and may be used as reference material or cited from another document.
> 
> This document was produced by a group operating under the 5 February 2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the group; that page also includes instructions for disclosing a patent.
