Very interesting video. I recommend!
Abstract: Web content has shifted from simple documents to active programs, but web protocols and browsers have not evolved adequately to support them. As a result, safety problems in web sites and web browsers now regularly make headlines, from browser exploits to ISPs that modify web pages. In this talk, I will discuss my research into improving the security and reliability of web content and browsers.
After this, I will talk more broadly about my research on web browser security, focusing on the deficiencies of today's web as an application platform. Starting from my prior work on BrowserShield, I will show how we need a safer architecture for running programs within the browser. Like an operating system, this new architecture will need effective mechanisms to define, isolate, and enforce policies on these web programs.
