    Cross-domain wikis and a cross-domain RSS aggregators are specific
    instances of a "mashup" application.  A mashup is a third-party
    application which combines data from different web sites into a coherent
    whole.  Many mashups utilize mapping data from Google Maps and other
    similar public data sources, but when private or secret data needs to be
    aggregated into a coherent whole, a different approach is required.
    "Secure Mashup" protocols such as OAuth are starting to emerge on the
    wider Internet, and work in this area can have significant impact on the
    IC and other secure collaboration environments.
    In this talk, Isaac will explain what's interesting about secure mashups
    from a secure collaboration point of vew, and will present some
    architectures related to them, as well as some potential applications.
    Eric will explain how OAuth fits into all this, and will describe the
    OAuth protocol in some detail.
