- RFC 4918, "WebDAV - Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning," is a protocol for a
standard infrastructure for asynchronous collaborative authoring across the Internet. It
provides a standard interface between authoring tools and Web content, with version management
and locking and management of metadata such as author and last modification date. Essentially,
it is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol which allows users to collaboratively edit and
manage files on remote Web servers.
