This document defines the concept of an "origin", which is often used
as the scope of authority or privilege by user agents.  Typically,
user agents isolate content retrieved from different origins to
prevent malicious web site operators from interfering with the
operation of benign web sites.  In addition to outlining the
principles that underlie the concept of origin, this document details
how to determine the origin of a URI and how to serialize an origin
into a string.  It also defines an HTTP header field, named "Origin",
that indicates which origins are associated with an HTTP request.
