The WebCL API is designed with security as a primary requirement. The Validator will enforce compliance of WebCL kernels with the defined WebCL language restrictions, and prevent out-of-bounds memory accesses. The WebCL kernel Validator will enforce out of bounds memory protections and will perform syntactic validation of WebCL kernels. The WebCL working group received five proposals, in response to the WebCL Validator RFQ. Vincit was selected to implement the WebCL Validator. Initial design discussions have started, which will be followed by development. All discussion and development will be done in public on public_webcl@khronos.org, and the project will be set up as open source.

Khronos has announced a Request For Quote for a WebCL Kernel Validator.

The WebCL kernel Validator will enforce out of bounds memory protections, and will perform syntactic validation of WebCL kernels. Details are available online in PDF format.

Mikael Bourges-Sevenier has sent in three WebGL and WebCL modules that he’s written for Node. node-webcl from Motorola Mobility is an implementation of the Khronos WebCL working draft using Node. node-webgl is an implementation of the Khronos WebGL specification. node-glfw is a JavaScript wrapper around GLFW. This provides implementations, where possible, of WebGL methods on top of desktop OpenGL as well as a browser compliant event model.

The Khronos WebCL Working Group is pleased to announce the availability of the first WebCL public working draft. Many thanks to the editors Tomi Aarnio and Mikael Bourges-Sevenier, and to everyone who contributed to and reviewed the draft, and participated in the discussions.
