An Architecture for Secure Fault-Tolerant Global Applications

Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

Applications are increasingly being developed over the Internet, and Internet programming languages seek new abstractions for programming what is in effect a "Global computer." The characteristics of the evolving Internet environment have led to new ways of thinking about how to structure such global applications. The authors advocate a programming language approach to building Internet applications that reflects this change in viewpoint. This approach has a particular emphasis on the demands of fault-tolerant applications, while being centrally concerned with safeguarding security.
