+Cross-Origin Resource Sharing
+=============================
+
+CORS, or "Cross-origin resource sharing" allows a resource such as a web
+page running JavaScript inside a browser, to make AJAX requests
+(XMLHttpRequests) to a different domain, without compromising the security
+of either party.
+
+A typical use case is to have a static website hosted on a CDN make
+requests to another resource, such as a hosted CouchDB instance. This
+avoids needing an intermediary proxy, using JSONP or similar workarounds
+to retrieve and host content.
+
+While CouchDB's integrated HTTP server and support for document attachments
+makes this less of a constraint for pure Couch projects, there are many
+cases where separating the static content from the database access is
+desirable, and CORS makes this very straightforwards indeed.
+
+By supporting CORS functionality, a CouchDB instance can accept direct
+connections to protected DBs and instances, without the browser
+functionality being blocked due to the same origin constraint. CORS is
+widely supported today on over 90% of browsers.
+
+CORS support is provided as experimental functionality in 1.3.0, and as
+such will need to be enabled specifically in CouchDB's configuration.
+
+.. versionadded:: 1.3.0 added CORS support see JIRA :issue:`431`
+
+Features
+--------
+
+-  Simple requests for a couchdb instance
+-  Preflight requests for a couchdb instance
+-  Configuration for a specific CouchDB vhost
+-  All origins are excluded by default
+
+Configuration
+-------------
+
+Enabling CORS
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+To enable CORS support, you need to set the option
+``enable_cors = true`` in the ``[httpd]`` section of ``local.ini``, and
+``[cors]`` section with ``origins = *``. Note that by default, no
+origins are accepted, you must either use a wildcard or whitelist.
+
+.. code-block:: ini
+
+    [httpd]
+    enable_cors = true
+
+    [cors]
+    origins = *
+
+Passing Credentials
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+By default, neither authentication headers nor cookies are included
+in requests and responses. To do so requires both setting
+`XmlHttpRequest.withCredentials = true` on the request object in the
+browser, and additionally enabling it within CouchDB.
+
+.. code-block:: ini
+
+    [cors]
+    credentials = true
+
+CouchDB will respond to a credentials-enabled CORS request with an
+additional header, `Access-Control-Allow-Credentials=true`.
+
+Tightening Access
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+Restricting by Protocol, Host and optional Port
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+.. code-block:: ini
+
+    [cors]
+    ; List of origins, separated by a comma (protocol, host, optional port)
+    ; refer to http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6454 for specification
+    origins = http://localhost, https://localhost, http://www.number10.gov.uk:80
+
+Restricting Accepted Methods
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

+    methods = GET, POST, PUT, DELETE
+
+Configuration per vhost
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+All the above parameters `origins`, `methods`, `headers`, `credentials`
+may be individually configured per CouchDB vhost. For example, the
+configuration section for `http://example.com/` would be contained in:
+
+.. code-block:: ini
+
+    [cors:http://example.com]
+    credentials = false
+    origins = *
