    The W3C is working on creating a consistent means to find information on a site's security policy. "With a key proof-of-concept event looming in June, the leaders of a World Wide Web Consortium working group on Tuesday outlined changes to an Internet privacy proposal they expect to finalize later this year. The newly released working draft of the W3C's Platform for Privacy Preferences Project, which offers Web sites a way to communicate their privacy policies in a standard machine-readable format, calls for online users to receive a snapshot of a site's privacy policy before they send any data to the site. They also would receive a warning if any health care information will be requested."
