WebSec: Securing Web-driven Systems
Research Project , 2018 – 2023

Our society relies on the web to support the economic, governmental, and military infrastructure, making web security critical for Cybersecurity and Information Security at large. WebSec: Securing Web-driven Systems sets out to develop a principled security platform for the web. The project is supported by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) and will result in:

-Comprehensive framework for detection, mitigation, and prevention of cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

-JavaScript program analysis platform for monitoring and symbolically executing JavaScript.

-Principled framework for system-wide security, enabling confinement, tainting, and information-flow control mechanisms across web component boundaries.
