Implementation -- Security
Will your Web site contain confidential documents? If yes, some form of access control will be
necessary to insure such documents are served only to authorized users.
Three types of access restriction
The World Wide Web Security FAQ
- Restriction by IP address, subnet, or domain
Individual documents or whole directories are protected in such a way that only browsers
connecting from certain IP (Internet) addresses, IP subnets, or domains can access them.
- Restriction by user name and password
Documents or directories are protected so that the remote user has to provide a name and
password in order to get access.
- Encryption using public key cryptography
Both the request for the document and the document itself are encrypted in such a way that the
text cannot be read by anyone but the intended recipient. Public key cryptography can also be
used for reliable user verification. See below.
