Full Title or Meme

A internet service running the HTTP protocol to allow a Subject (natural or legal person) access to a collection of Resources.

Context

  • While the HTTP protocol can be used for other purposes, they are not included in this usage.
  • In this wiki a Web Site can be one or more of:
  1. A Resource provider or Relying Party (Those terms are synonyms.)
  2. A Identifier or Attribute Provider
  3. An anonymous source of content which is not otherwise the subject of this wiki.

Problems

A User that wants to get access to Resources on the web needs some level of Assurance that they will not suffer an attack from malicious actors also on the internet.

Solutions

  • The most common way for Users to access a Web Site is with a web browser from some well-know browser provider either within a device operated by the user, or on a cloud computer under user control.
  • A growing form of access to web sites is via a Native App provided by a source which should provide the security details about the app.

References

  • The page Web Site Identity explains the really horrendous way in which Users can determine where there are in the internet is badly broken.
  • The page Web Site Security explains the way in which Web Sites need to protect and inform users so that they can be secure on the web.
