Proposed updates are now available for UTR #36, Unicode Security Considerations, and UTS #39, Unicode Security Mechanisms. These are both being updated to correspond with Unicode 7.0.
PRI #272, Proposed Update UTR #36, Unicode Security Considerations:
This UTR is being updated. In this draft, a description has been added about the downside of displaying URLs as Punycode. A note has also been added on the use of Catalan in identifiers.
PRI #273, Proposed Update UTS #39, Unicode Security Mechanisms:
This UTS is being updated to correspond with Unicode 7.0. Text has been added about the use of NFC, and on the use of Catalan in identifiers. A note has been added on the collection of confusable data outside of Status=allowed, such as for non-NFKC characters.
Review notes solicit feedback on whether to (a) add multi-character sequences to the data file, (b) change some of the Type values, and (c) base the data more on CLDR exemplars, and/or (d) change the format of the data files.
The closing date for both of these issues is April 28, 2014. For information about how to discuss this Public Review Issue and how to supply formal feedback, please see the feedback and discussion instructions on the PRI pages.
