From the Author Some time ago, I was asked whether my two previous books - Authentication Systems for Secure Networks and Internet and Intranet Security - could also be used to educate professional Webmasters in security matters. Unfortunately, I realized that while the books cover the technologies used to secure applications for the WWW, they are written in a language that is somehow inappropriate for professional Webmasters. Note that these folks are generally familiar with network operating system issues and communication protocols, but they are neither security experts nor cryptographic specialists. They may not even be interested in architectural details and design considerations for cryptographic technologies and protocols that are not widely deployed.

Having in mind the professional Webmaster who must be educated in security matters within a relatively short period of time, I decided to write a book that serves as a corresponding security primer. While writing this book, I realized that it could also be used by common Web users and application developers. The resulting book, Security Technologies for the World Wide Web, overviews and briefly discusses the major topics that are relevant for Web security. The reader of this book will get a sufficiently complete overview of the major topics that are relevant for the WWW and the security thereof.

The book is intended for anyone who is concerned about security on the Web, is in charge of security for a network, or manages an organization that uses the WWW. It can be used for lectures, courses, and tutorials. It can also be used for self-study or serve as a handy reference for Web professionals.
