Introducing the long-awaited first step to personal privacy on theWeb!

Privacy on the Internet is a very complicated–anddelicate–subject. It is about making sure that sites arehonest with the people using their services, and providing the enduser with the choice of whether or not to share information withthe original server.

The Platform for Privacy Preferences Project (P3P), an emergingindustry standards set developed by the World Wide Web Consortium(W3C), provides a simple way for users to gain more control overthe use of personal information on the Web sites they visit. Byusing P3P to encode privacy policies in XML format, browsers caninterpret whether a Web site meets an individual’s privacystandards and alert the user when a site does not.

Written by experts, this is the first book to show systemsarchitects how to embed and design a Web site that is compliantwith P3P. The authors provide detailed descriptions of the P3Pstandard and its parameters, as well as guidelines, explanations,and P3P how-to examples that you can follow. In addition to thedetailed example of how to encode a Web site’s P3P policy withXML and a complete XML tutorial appendix, you’ll also learnvaluable information such as:

  • Vulnerabilities and threats to Internet security
  • The lowdown on log files, cookies, spam, Web bugs, andtracking
  • P3P policies and policy reference files
