Socio-technical networks (STNs) are networks of people and social things (i.e. autonomous physical or virtual objects). An STN mirrors the physical world by creating digital counterparts of physical and abstract entities and relating them to one another. In the same time, applications running in the digital world may reflect back into the physical world (e.g. through actuators).
An STN encodes the different relations among people and smart things, such as friendship, ownership, provenance or colocation. An STN may not exist outside of the minds of its members, however, in most cases, an STN is reified within an STN platform.
STN-Operations-HTTP provides the concepts and properties required for performin STN operations as HTTP requests and extracting RDF data from HTTP responses.
Defines the authentication/authorization frameworks used for accessing the HTTP services of an STN platform.
Authenticated STN Request

An authN/Z protocol supported by this STN platform.
The base URL for the HTTP services provided by this STN platform.
A sequence of characters used to identify the parameter of a request within the scope of an STN platform. For instance, when creating a connection, the required UserID parameter might be referred to as “user_id” in one platform and “id” in another.
