<p>This document introduces no security considerations above and beyond those specified in <cite>XEP-0060</cite> and <cite>XEP-0163</cite>.</p>
<p>Since private data is to be stored in a mechanism originally intended to <em>publish</em> data, it is REQUIRED for entities to ensure that the restrictive &lt;publish-options/&gt; will actually be honored by the server by performing the feature discovery procedure as specified in <link url='#support'>Determining Support</link>. If an entity using that procedure finds that the server does not support &lt;publish-options/&gt;, it MUST NOT store private data in PubSub, unless it can ensure privacy of the data with other means.</p>
<p>The Security Considerations specified in <cite>XEP-0060</cite> and <cite>XEP-0163</cite> need to be taken into account.</p>
