To implement the new security model[1] we want to check the package's signature in parent side before the content side actually load the content. After we check the package's signature we could send the halfway loaded content to the content side to continue the load to avoid opening a new connection. To be honest I don't know how to make this work yet.

What exactly is the "package" here?  An "application/package" content?  Or something else?
