The specification for the httpsy URL scheme is:

http://www.waterken.com/dev/YURL/httpsy/

Excerpt:

>             Waterken(TM) YURL
> Authentication of TLS Upgrade Within HTTP/1.1
>
> This specification defines a mechanism for authenticating an
> HTTP server based on the hash of its public key, instead of a
> trusted certificate from a certificate authority.
>
> Abstract
>
> Before sending a request to a resource identified by an httpsy
> URL, a client MUST complete a mandatory upgrade to TLS/1.0. The
> client authenticates the server by constructing a valid
> certificate path to a certificate that is signed using a public
> key whose hash matches that given in the httpsy URL.

If you would like to learn more about the purpose of the httpsy
URL scheme, start with the documentation tree rooted at:

Tyler
