HTML 5 web security

Introduction

Currently, the Hypertext Markup Language version 4.01 (HTML 4.01) is the markup language, specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in 1999, which is the current standard for HTML [1]. This standard specifies how HTML should be used for defining web pages. XHTML 1.0 and XHTML 1.1 have basically the same functionality as HTML 4.01, except of some exclusions and extensions to HTML, but were reformulated to the Extensible Markup Language (XML) instead of the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) [2].

The Hypertext Markup Language version 5 (HTML5) [3] is the successor of HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0 and XHTML 1.1 [4].

The browser manufacturer Apple Computer, Inc., Mozilla Foundation and Opera Software ASA founded the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) in 2004 with the intension to develop and extend new web technologies, firstly under the label Web Application 1.0 and later with the name HTML5.
