This protocol allows a client to ask the compositor to only allow it to
be displayed on a "secure" output.
This is based on a chromium protocol of the same name .
This protocol is mostly useful for closed systems, where the client can
trust the compositor, such as set-top boxes. This is not a way to
implement any kind of Digital Rights Management on desktops. The
protocol deliberately doesn't define what a "secure output" is, and the
compositor would be free to lie to the client anyway.
The protocol has been designed to be extendable with other protocols to
implement more specific types of security that a client may care about,
e.g. HDCP. This extensibility is based on the concept of a "role" that a

+ <description summary="Protocol for providing secure output">
+ This protocol specifies a set of interfaces used to prevent surface
+ contents from appearing in screenshots or from being visible on non-secure
+ In order to prevent surface contents from appearing in screenshots or from
+ being visible on non-secure outputs, a client must first bind the global
+ interface "wp_secure_output" which, if a compositor supports secure output,
+ is exposed by the registry. Using the bound global object, the client uses
+ the "get_security" request to instantiate an interface extension for a
+ wl_surface object. This extended interface will then allow surfaces
+ to be marked as only visible on secure outputs.
+ Warning! The protocol described in this file is experimental and backward
+ incompatible changes may be made. Backward compatible changes may be added
+ together with the corresponding interface version bump. Backward
+ incompatible changes are done by bumping the version number in the protocol
+ and interface names and resetting the interface version. Once the protocol
+ is to be declared stable, the 'z' prefix and the version number in the
+ protocol and interface names are removed and the interface version number is

+ An additional interface to a wl_surface object, which allows the

+ or be visible on non-secure outputs.
+ In order for a security object to take effect, the security object must
+ have an implementation set for it.
+ A security object can only have one implementation at a time. Initially
+ the security object has no implementation. Once the implementation is
+ set, it is set permanently set for the whole lifetime of the security
+ object. Setting the same interface again is allowed, unless explicitly
+ forbidden by the relevant interface specification.
+ Security implementations are set by the requests in other interfaces
+ such as wp_secure_output.set_default. The request should explicitly
+ mention that the request sets the wp_security's implementation.
+ Often, this request also creates a new protocol object that represents
+ the implementation and adds additional functionality to the wp_security.
+ When a client wants to destroy a wp_security, they must destroy this
+ 'implementation object' before the wp_security.
+ If the wl_surface associated with the security object is destroyed,
+ the security object becomes inert.
