Subject general/2793: When will Apache support P3P? Any Plans? (fwd)
Date Thu, 06 Aug 1998 07:16:28 GMT
Erm... can anyone explain this P3P stuff in english?

So, as I understand it, this is reacting to some great need for some 
magic way to communicate privacy preferences.  I'm afraid I don't 
get the whole point, nor do I really see the practicality.

W3C posted P3P recently, and the Federal Gov't is asking for sites to
offer better privacy protection. P3P is not perfect, but allows people to
do better things than possible with current "cookie" technology.

Any plans to support it?


It can either be a plug-in, or as a standard feature of Apache. Don't care
how it's implemented, just need a timeframe to plan... We're getting asked
specifically by the Privacy Alliance and the US Government about if/when this
can happen. I'm tech liaison for Cisco to these groups. Any help/feedback
would be appreciated.
