The presence of Site evidence produces a SiteIdentityPermission in the grant set. If there is a Demand for SiteIdentityPermission, the SiteIdentityPermission that corresponds to the Site evidence will be compared with the demanded permission.

Site identity is defined for code from URLs with any protocol except FILE. A site is the string between the "//" after the protocol of a URL and the following "/", if present. For example, www.fourthcoffee.com is the site identity in the URL http://www.fourthcoffee.com/process/grind.htm. This excludes port numbers. If a given URL is http://www.fourthcoffee.com:8000/, the site is www.fourthcoffee.com, not www.fourthcoffee.com:8000.
