Abstract [en]

The HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is used for the most popular service on the Internet today - World Wide Web. WebDAV is a new extension to the HTTP protocol, which makes it possible to write, edit and share information across intranets and the Internet. In this Master's Thesis, the WebDAV extensions are examined. A comparison between HTTP with WebDAV and the existing Internet protocols FTP and POP3 is done. Also a behavioral analysis of existing WebDAV applications is made. The conclusions are that HTTP with WebDAV extensions can replace both FTP and POP3. When using HTTP's pipelining and persistent connections, better performance than with FTP is achieved. It seems like WebDAV can be used as a universal protocol for client-server solutions, gaining the advantages of HTTP such as encryption and caching.
