Abstract

An architecture is described for content distribution using a secondary server that might be operated with reduced privileges. This architecture allows a primary server to delegate the responsibility for delivery of the payload of an HTTP response to a secondary server. The secondary server is unable to modify this content. The content is encrypted, which in some cases will prevent the secondary server from learning about the content.
