This protocol allows a client to ask the compositor to only allow it to
be displayed on a "secure" output (e.g. HDCP).
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.

There is a proof-of-concept implementation of this protocol for weston
Changes since v1:
- Fix formatting
- Add 'secure_resolution' event
As Simon brought up, this may not be the type of patch that is
necessarily wanted upstream, and it's completely understandable if it's
not. There are probably multiple parties that are interested in such a
thing, but I suppose the answer depends on what wayland-protocols is
designed to accommodate.
I'm just proposing the 'secure_resolution' event, because I believe it
can allow for the client to adjust to changing security conditions
without being tied to any specific underlying technology (e.g. HDCP).
It's still largely up to compositor policy how this could be used, but
we'll have to see if this can meet everybody's requirements.

+ <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

+ limited to these behaviours.
+ The server may send this event multiple times over the lifetime of this
+ object, as the status of security changes.
+ If the server sends this event with both width and height as zero,
+ then no content can currently be output securely. The server must not
+ send any event where only one of width or height are zero.
+ Before the server has sent the first of these events, the client
+ should assume that no content can be output securely, i.e. width
+ and height are both zero.
