Building Trusted Paths for Web Browsers. Technical Report TR2002-430, Dept of Computer Science, Dartmouth College.
Master's thesis; advisor: S.W. Smith.
A survey of modern Web browsers shows the information provided by current browsers is insufficient for users to make trust judgment. Our Web spoofing work further proved that the browser status information is not reliable either.
We discuss the criteria for and how to build the trusted paths between a browser and a human user. We present an open source implementation of one of the designs--synchronized random dynamic (SRD) boundary, based on Modified Mozilla source code, together with its usability study results.
