A User's and Programmer's View of the New JavaScript Security Model

Vinod Anupam, David M. Kristol, and Alain Mayer, Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies


In this paper we introduce a new security model for JavaScript in Mozilla, as well as its programming interface. We present important concepts via examples from electronic commerce applications. We also describe our experience of implementing the model in the publicly available Mozilla source code. This model is likely to be integrated into Navigator 5.0, which, as of this writing, is scheduled to be released in late fall, 1999.
