New Access Control Features in World-Wide-Web Servers

Christoph Schuba - PhD Candidate, Purdue University

Sep 30, 1994


The World-Wide-Web is currently the fastest growing service in the
Internet. Users make information about literally anything available to
the entire community of Internet users.

The most recent implementation of a popular W3 server (httpd.1-3
augmented its functionality by the the possibility of access control
to web pages. That is useful if users want to restrict the access to
their pages to a certain user group, or domain.

I will present the newly available functionality and discuss how
secure the implementation actually is.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
