"A Web cache sits between Web servers (or origin servers) and a client or many clients, and watches requests for HTML pages, images and files (collectively known as objects) come by, saving a copy for itself. Then, if there is another request for the same object, it will use the copy that it has, instead of asking the origin server for it again."
"Evaluating caching products means matching your needs with the right type of product that supports the right features. A cache that supports a remote office LAN will differ markedly from a cache that supports millions of users on the Internet."
Web security is a complex topic, encompassing computer system security, network security, authentication services, message validation, personal privacy issues, and cryptography. This page contains links to various aspects of Web and Internet security.
"This web site is slowly evolving into a central repository of information about web caching. It grew out of my research interests in web caching, namely web prefetching and cache evaluation. As with most successful projects, this web site is built on the shoulders of giants who placed their links of useful web caching resources online. In particular, Duane Wessel's mammoth work on producing the Information Resource Caching FAQ served as a strong starting point."
This document gives an overview of the current caching and replication terminology. It describes the current protocols and is a starting point for anyone interested in the subject.
