Title: COMMUNICATING BETWEEN APPLICATIONS
Abstract:
A first application invokes a first URI specifying a second application as the destination of the first URI. The first URI contains a return URI specifying the first application as the destination of the return URI, and the first URI further specifies an action of returning data from the second application. In response to the invocation of the first URI by the first application, the second application checks that the destination specified by the return URI corresponds to a trusted partner in a set of trusted partners, and on condition that the return URI does indeed correspond to one of the trusted partners in the set, it invokes the return URI in order to return the data to the first application. The return URI uses a secure protocol which authenticates an identity of the destination specified by the return URI, and which returns the data over an encrypted channel.
