Zawinski's Law for Webservices

Submitted Jul 31, 2019

Service provision can simplified and secured through the use of email

Outline

  • Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can.

  • Does every service need to run a webserver on its own port ?

  • Email

  • requestor uses S/MIME signed and encrypted email to service@server
  • server can route requests to services
  • service can send S/MIME signed and encrypted response to requestor

  • Reduces complexity, increases security

  • Service providers focus on the service rather than the interface

  • Demo
