Trust Management In Web Browsers, Present and Future
This talk will discuss how trust relationships are modeled and managed
in the two most popular Web browsers, Netscape Navigator and Microsoft
Internet Explorer. There are two competing trust models, the
shrink-wrap model and the Java model, each of which is supported by
both browsers. We will compare the strengths and weaknesses of the
models, and describe how each must evolve in order to survive.
Finally, we will predict what kind of trust model will be supported by
- Drew Dean, Edward W. Felten, and Dan Wallach
