[security-dev] JS libraries for crypto and signatures

An important topic.

Until the W3C Web Cryptographic Group 
finalizes its standard and we have conforming implementations,
the question of trustworthy implementations cannot be really answered.

If the JS library is just implementing signature or crypto algorithms 
and you have tested it, may be you
should go for it.

The situation is very similar to the following:
- JSON processing (Until JSON-P JSR https://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=353 
was finalized, we could go either with Jackson or other json library)
- Captcha libraries (there are many)

Your application has to choose one and go forward.
