The transport is a new technique for secure cross-domain browser based data transfer, and can be utilized for creating secure mashups with untrusted sources. is implemented in Dojo in the new module, and it is very easy to make web services available through the protocol. works by loading a cross-domain HTML file in an iframe. The HTML file then sets its to the string content that should be delivered to the requester. The requester can then retrieve the value as the response. The requested resource never has access to the requester’s environment (JavaScript variables, cookies, and DOM).
