You should use the web page title, shortened if necessary. If you do shorten the title, begin with the first word and not a later word that might seem more representative. (For example, shorten “Glossary of Terms Used in Heraldry” to “Glossary” or “Glossary of Terms,” not “Heraldry”).

If some of your web page titles are the same, you can add a year or other citation information that identifies them as different.

The circumstance in which you would reference Homeland Security as the author would be if you had formatted your citation for Homeland Security to be the author (which is up to you; internet citations are still evolving).

This information can be found on page 223 of the MLA Handbook.
