Same-Origin, Same-Site, and Cross-Site explained in simple terms

These terms are used a lot in the context of web security to distinguish between different types of requests or resources.

Same-Origin is when two web pages have the same origin if the protocol, port (if specified), and host are the same for both pages.

Same-Site is a more relaxed version of same-origin. It allows pages to interact if they're from the same site, which means they have the same registered domain.

Cross-Site refers to situations where interactions happen between different sites.

Hope this helps.
