BrowserScope checks your security too

Category: Security



What is what I got when I pointed a Chrome dev channel build at the new security tests on BrowserScope. Collin Jackson and Adam Barth have written up the test suites.

Steve is excited to see this:

The new security tests in Browserscope were developed by Adam Barth from UC Berkeley, and Collin Jackson and Mustafa Acer from Carnegie Mellon University. It’s exciting to have these experts become Browserscope contributors. The tests cover such areas as postMessage API, JSON.parse API, httpOnly cookie attribute, and cross-origin capability leaks. See the Security about page to read about all the tests.

What tests are next?

So now we just need to add Sputniktests in there for completeness, don’t we? :)
