Full Title or Meme

A digital Entity that is operating a User Device, but is typically supplied by the Web Site or some Federation.

Context

  • When discussing the use of the internet by a user, what is really meant is the presence of the user's agent on an internet connection.
  • Typically the Native App will run on a User Device, but it is possible that the agent is running on a service in The Cloud.

Problems

  • Nearly any application running on a user's device is allowed to access the internet and claim that it represents the user. There is no built-in mechanism to test this assertion by an internet connected service. The internet was designed to connect computer systems, and that is all it can be relied upon to do.
  • Any Web Site that wishes to create a Persistent Identifier for a User will need to take responsibility for any necessary Assurance that the Native App has not been compromised by an attacker.
  • Most of the larger enterprises operating on The Web prefer to supply a Native App to the users device to improve the User Experience for that site.
  • To be sure that the User's intent is expressed by the Native App appears to be an insurmountable obstacle.

Solutions

  • Certification of the Native App.
