7.6 GUIDs

A core concept in Lift is GUIDs. GUIDs are globally unique identifiers used to associate something in the browser with a function on the server. GUIDs make Lift more secure because they make replay attacks very difficult and GUIDs make it easier to develop complex, stateful, interactive applications because the developer spends more time on business logic and less time on the plumbing of it.
