Your black list vs. white list is the best reasoning for CORS I have ever seen.

You misunderstood me. Please read
or #0014 post again.

What I said is that the government is evil, the government is trying
to use http://evil.com/a.html
to access data from my website: https://bankA.com/ticker/MSFT (which
is public data) and
https://bankA.com/LastTransactionOfISISaccount (which is confidential
data). The bank is not an evil.

Since you are not saying my way has a flow in it, so I do not have to
challenge you. But I really hope Florian and Tab Atkins can accept my
challenge to defeat me.

I want the configurable same origin policy at the browser side(Florian
said I do not want same origin policy which is not right), what I do
not need is the CORS which is the authorization thing. And I, as the
manager of https://bankA.com/, do not need to delegate the
authorization checking procedure to a remote browser and I believe no
server should trust and delegate the authorization check to the remote
browser. Any server's security relies on that should be defeated
easily, that's a real security hole.

And I believe with my proposal to extend the same origin policy, CORS
thing can retire since it is redundant so useless.

Your black & white list thing is nice. But the link you gave is not
from that perspective, instead saying something that is not really
relevant. Florian Bosch & Tab Atkins seems to suggest with what I
proposed (see the #24 post & #2 post), there is a security issue.
Hence, I hope they can tell me how to stole the confidential data from
my site.

with best regards
