E-business can comprise a range of functions and services, ranging from the development of intranets and extranets to e-service, the provision of services and tasks over the Internet by application service providers. Today, as major corporations continuously rethink their businesses in terms of the Internet, specifically its availability, wide reach and ever-changing capabilities, they are conducting e-business to buy parts and supplies from other companies, collaborate on sales promotions, and conduct joint research. With the security built into today's browsers, and with digital certificates now available for individuals and companies from Verisign, a certificate issuer, much of the early concern about the security of business transaction on the Web has abated, and e-business by whatever name is accelerating.
