As to online shopping, you can remove that since without cookies...
And no. No web site will sign up. Well, maybe the one you made.
I want to specify a requirements specification for extremely safe web use. Note that this is a preliminary rough draft. The ultimate goal is to create a standard for "safe surfing" that is as safe as possible. Another goal is to create guidelines for the creation of a "computer trespass" law.
1. is it possible for web sites to comply with these specs? The major consideration is cost. A seconday
consideration is what changes, if any, need to be made to the software products that are used to program web sites?
2. is my specification complete? I.E. what did I miss.
Here is my wish list.
1. no cookies: I will not order anything or use any web site that requires cookies.
2. active-x controls: I want to turn them off for ever
3. encryption: I want any and all passwords and/or
financial information( credit card#, etc ) encrypted.
4. java: I want web sites to only use SERVER side java.
5. software installation: I don't want any dependencies
to crop up during my software installation. If the product that I am installing requires that I have Adobe
Viewer v4.5, then the installation should NOT prompt me to install Adobe v4.5, but should write to an installation log a message that Adove 4.5 is required.
6. software installation: I want a log of any and all
software installations. The log should be written to a
standardized location. If this requires changes to the
operating system, then "make it so".
7. viruses, trojan horse, etc.: I do not wnat any files or programs written to my pc. The only way to write files or install anything to my pc is thru a software installation. No exceptions.
8. identitiy theft: No use of Social Security number, either the whole number, the last 4 digits, etc. should be allowed.
9. host connections: I don't want any software installed on my machine to connect to another computer
without amy explicit OK. And I want all connections
logged to a standardized connection log. The IP address
of the site connected to must be written to the connection log file.
