A code assembly satisfies a site membership condition if that code originates from the Web site specified by Site. 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, is the site identity in the URL This excludes port numbers. If a given URL is, the site is, not

Sites can be matched exactly, or by a wildcard ("*") prefix at the dot delimiter. For example, the site name * matches as well as Without a wildcard, the site name must be a precise match. The site name * will match any site, but will not match code that has no site evidence.
