Content Security

Progress towards more robust security hooks for better correctness in content security features like CSP, adblock, etc.
Tanvi, Christoph, Garrett, Sid
  • [DONE] Gecko Security Hooks: Finish code and debugging for NS_NewChannel API, start getting reviews. See bug 1038756, bug 1006881 (dri=tanvi)
  • [DEFER] Gecko Security Hooks: Create plan for addon compatibility - nothing to do until JS impl is done (dri=tanvi)
  • [DONE] CSP: Remove old JS implementation from mozilla-central. Target Fx34. See bug 994782 (dri=sstamm)
  • [DONE] Evangelism: Security blog post about new CSP implementation, maybe again as brown bag. (dri=sstamm)

Tracking Protection

Better user control (and site control) over metadata on the wire and collected by third parties.
Monica, Garrett, Sid, Georgios
  • [AT RISK] Referer: Finish implementation of <meta> referrer control with volunteer help. See bug 704320, very close. (dri=sstamm)
  • [DONE] Land backend and bridge code for first implementation of protection in Fx 33/34 off by default. BONUS: landed frontend code too (dri=mmc)

Communications Security

Fresher/more accurate revocation information and progress towards defeating certificate misissuance and Man-In-The-Middle attacks.

  • [DONE] Update roadmap for Cert Revocation improvements (dri=rbarnes)
  • [DONE] Create a mechanism to provision phones with an alternate cert (dri=mgoodwin)
  • [DONE] Add measurement/enforcement of compliance with CABF Baseline Requirements. See bug 1050546 (dri=keeler)
  • [DONE] Create a tool for testing CA certificate compliance and EV-readiness. See bug 926599 and bug 1029095 (dri=keeler)
  • [DONE] Add support for key wrap/unwrap and ECC in WebCrypto (dri=rbarnes)
  • [DEFER] [stretch goal] Enable revocation of intermediate CAs through block list service (dri=mgoodwin, keeler)
