European Roadmap for Research on Web Security

The Web platform is a hotbed of innovation that will affect deployment of technologies and applications for the next decade, and will influence the security and privacy that European users and service providers can achieve. The STREWS project will link European security and trust related research and development with ongoing standards and development work for the Web in IETF and W3C.

The project will develop a technical state of practice document for Web Security as a basis for case studies on selected Web security topics. A roadmap for future research and standardization in the Web security field will provide guidance for ongoing and future research. Over the course of the project, STREWS will reach out to European industry and projects, and organize a series of workshops to collect broad input into its roadmapping and case study work, and to create a European Web security community across academia and practice
