Web Site Privacy with P3P

Overview

Privacy on the Internet is a very complicated -- and delicate -- subject. It is about making sure that sites are honest with the people using their services, and providing the end user with the choice of whether or not to share information with the original server. The Platform for Privacy Preferences Project (P3P), an emerging industry standards set developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), provides a simple way for users to gain more control over the use of personal information on the Web sites they ...

Overview

Privacy on the Internet is a very complicated -- and delicate -- subject. It is about making sure that sites are honest with the people using their services, and providing the end user with the choice of whether or not to share information with the original server. The Platform for Privacy Preferences Project (P3P), an emerging industry standards set developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), provides a simple way for users to gain more control over the use of personal information on the Web sites they visit. By using P3P to encode privacy policies in XML format, browsers can interpret whether a Web site meets an individual's privacy standards and alert the user when a site does not. Written by experts, this is the first book to show systems architects how to embed and design a Web site that is compliant with P3P. The authors provide detailed descriptions of the P3P standard and its parameters, as well as guidelines, explanations, and P3P how-to examples that you can follow.
