    391    The authentication parameter realm is defined for all authentication
    392    schemes:
     390  <iref item="Protection Space"/>
     391  <iref item="Realm"/>
     392<t>
     393   The authentication parameter realm is reserved for use by authentication
     394   schemes that wish to indicate the scope of protection:

    399    The realm directive (case-insensitive) is required for all
    400    authentication schemes that issue a challenge. The realm value
    401    (case-sensitive), in combination with the canonical root URI
    402    (the scheme and authority components of the effective request URI; see
    403    <xref target="Part1" x:fmt="of" x:rel="#effective.request.uri"/>) of the server being accessed, defines the protection space.
     401   A <x:dfn>protection space</x:dfn> is defined by the canonical root URI (the
     402   scheme and authority components of the effective request URI; see
     403   <xref target="Part1" x:fmt="of" x:rel="#effective.request.uri"/>) of the
     404   server being accessed, in combination with the realm value if present.
    404405   These realms allow the protected resources on a server to be
    405406   partitioned into a set of protection spaces, each with its own
