HTTP Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is a communications protocol for secure communication over a computer network, with especially wide deployment on the Internet. Technically, it is not a protocol in and of itself; rather, it is the result of simply layering the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) on top of the SSL/TLS protocol, thus adding the security capabilities of SSL/TLS to standard HTTP communications. The security of HTTPS is therefore that of the underlying TLS, which uses long term public and secret keys to exchange a short term session key to encrypt the data flow between client and server. To guarantee one is talking to the partner one wants to talk to, X.509 certificates are used. In its popular deployment on the internet, HTTPS provides authentication of the web site and associated web server that one is communicating with, which protects against man-in-the-middle attacks. Overview HTTPS creates a secure channel over an insecure network. Usage in websites
Introduction to RSS(Rich Summary Site) Recently, there has been an unprecedented caution regarding data privacy. With infamous leaks and instances of phishing and spamming all around, no one wants to put their personal information out there without restraint, in fear of being the next unfortunate target. This makes staying posted with favored content on the massive expanse of the World Wide Web a daunting task. It seems like its time to grab onto the steering wheels. What is RSS? RSS stands for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication. To set up RSS for a website an XML file has to be created known as the RSS document or RSS Feed.Below is a sample RSS document. Explanation of the code : First comes the XML tag, its version and encoding scheme.The following line marks the beginning of the RSS tag with its version in use. .The next few lines show the channel tag, which marks the beginning of the RSS Feed. Once the XML is ready and validated, it is uploaded to the server.
S-T: Http Request/Response Anatomy Introduction to Web Web consist of billion of clients and server connected through wires and wireless networks. The web clients makes request to web server. The web server receives the request, finds the resources and return response to the client. Web Application A web site is a collection of static files such as HTML pages, images, graphics etc. HTTP is a protocol that clients and server uses on the web to communicate.It is similar to other internet protocol such as SMTP(Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) and FTP(File Transfer Protocol) but there is one fundamental difference.HTTP is a stateless protocol i.e HTTP supports only one request per connection.This means that with HTTP the clients connects to the server to send one request and then disconnects. HTTP method HTTP request can be made using a variety of methods, but the ones you will use most often are Get and Post. HTTP Method and Descriptions Difference between GET and POST request Anatomy of an HTTP GET request
Magnet URI scheme The Magnet URI scheme, defines the format of magnet links, a de facto standard for identifying files by their content, via cryptographic hash value rather than by their location. Although magnet links can be used in a number of contexts, they are particularly useful in peer-to-peer file sharing networks because they allow resources to be referred to without the need for a continuously available host, and can be generated by anyone who already has the file, without the need for a central authority to issue them. This makes them popular for use as "guaranteed" search terms within the file sharing community where anyone can distribute a magnet link to ensure that the resource retrieved by that link is the one intended, regardless of how it is retrieved. History Technical description Magnet URIs consist of a series of one or more parameters, the order of which is not significant, formatted in the same way as query strings that ordinarily terminate HTTP URLs. magnet:?

HTTP: The Protocol Every Web Developer Must Know - Part 2 In my previous article, we covered some of HTTP's basics, such as the URL scheme, status codes and request/response headers. With that as our foundation, we will look at the finer aspects of HTTP, like connection handling, authentication and HTTP caching. These topics are fairly extensive, but we'll cover the most important bits. A connection must be established between the client and server before they can communicate with each other, and HTTP uses the reliable TCP transport protocol to make this connection. HTTPS is a secure version of HTTP, inserting an additional layer between HTTP and TCP called TLS or SSL (Transport Layer Security or Secure Sockets Layer, respectively). An HTTP connection is identified by <source-IP, source-port> and <destination-IP, destination-port>. resolve IP address from host name via DNSestablish a connection with the serversend a requestwait for a responseclose connection The server is responsible for always responding with the correct headers and responses.
File Transfer Protocol FTP is built on a client-server architecture and uses separate control and data connections between the client and the server. FTP users may authenticate themselves using a clear-text sign-in protocol, normally in the form of a username and password, but can connect anonymously if the server is configured to allow it. For secure transmission that hides (encrypts) the username and password, and encrypts the content, FTP is often secured with SSL/TLS ("FTPS"). SSH File Transfer Protocol ("SFTP") is sometimes also used instead, but is technologically different. History The original specification for the File Transfer Protocol was written by Abhay Bhushan and published as RFC 114 on 16 April 1971. Until 1980, FTP ran on NCP, the predecessor of TCP/IP. The protocol was later replaced by a TCP/IP version, RFC 765 (June 1980) and RFC 959 (October 1985), the current specification.

BitTorrent Programmer Bram Cohen, a former University at Buffalo graduate student in Computer Science, designed the protocol in April 2001 and released the first available version on July 2, 2001, and the final version in 2008. BitTorrent clients are available for a variety of computing platforms and operating systems including an official client released by Bittorrent, Inc. As of 2009, BitTorrent reportedly had about the same number of active users online as viewers of YouTube and Facebook combined. As of January 2012[update], BitTorrent is utilized by 150 million active users (according to BitTorrent, Inc.). Based on this figure, the total number of monthly BitTorrent users can be estimated at more than a quarter of a billion. Description The middle computer is acting as a seed to provide a file to the other computers which act as peers. The file being distributed is divided into segments called pieces. When a peer completely downloads a file, it becomes an additional seed.

eDonkey network The eDonkey Network (also known as the eDonkey2000 network or eD2k) is a decentralized, mostly server-based, peer-to-peer file sharing network best suited to share big files among users, and to provide long term availability of files. Like most sharing networks, it is decentralized, as there is not any central hub for the network; also, files are not stored on a central server but are exchanged directly between users based on the peer-to-peer principle. Currently, the eD2k network is not supported by any organization (in the past it was supported by the MetaMachine Corporation, its creator, which now is out of business) and development and maintenance is being fully provided by its community and client developers. There are many programs that act as the client part of the network. The original eD2k protocol has been extended by subsequent releases of both eserver and eMule programs, generally working together to decide what new features the eD2k protocol should support.
