In a another thread “Nice writeup of International Semantic Web Conference by Helena Deus” there is this quote:
Does that mean application A cannot access my data generated by application B?
To be more precise, this is the scenario I am concerned about:
I open a contact manager application “A” and grant it access to my data.
Using the contact app “A” I store all my contacts in my POD.
Then I open a memo writing application “B” on some other website and grant it access to “my” data.
The question is now - is the memo app “B” able to read all my contacts created in app “A”? Is there any kind of protection against this? Does “B” have to ask for my consent to access the data from app “A” - or can “B” just read any data on my POD?
I ask because I have been unable to find documentation about this. I have only found specs for granting other users (WebID identities) access to my data using access control lists … but how about hiding one app’s data from another app?
And if Solid does specify this kind of protection - where can I then find the specs? And how do apps identity themselves?
