508      <p>The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-level protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information
509         systems. HTTP has been in use by the World Wide Web global information initiative since 1990. This document is Part 7 of the
510         seven-part specification that defines the protocol referred to as "HTTP/1.1" and, taken together, obsoletes RFC 2616. Part
511         7 defines HTTP Authentication.

741         make some suggestions for reducing security risks.

744      <p id="rfc.section.5.1.p.1">Existing HTTP clients and user agents typically retain authentication information indefinitely. HTTP/1.1 does not provide
745         a method for a server to direct clients to discard these cached credentials. This is a significant defect that requires further
746         extensions to HTTP. Circumstances under which credential caching can interfere with the application's security model include
747         but are not limited to:
748      </p>
749      <ul>
750         <li>Clients which have been idle for an extended period following which the server might wish to cause the client to reprompt
751            the user for credentials.
752         </li>
753         <li>Applications which include a session termination indication (such as a `logout' or `commit' button on a page) after which
754            the server side of the application `knows' that there is no further reason for the client to retain the credentials.
755         </li>
756      </ul>
757      <p id="rfc.section.5.1.p.2">This is currently under separate study. There are a number of work-arounds to parts of this problem, and we encourage the
758         use of password protection in screen savers, idle time-outs, and other methods which mitigate the security problems inherent
759         in this problem. In particular, user agents which cache credentials are encouraged to provide a readily accessible mechanism
760         for discarding cached credentials under user control.
