Project Details


WebChameleos: Towards Secure and Trustworthy Web Browsing over HTTP 20 WebChameleos: Towards Secure and Trustworthy Web Browsing over HTTP 2.0 In this project, we focus on HTTP 2.0 SPDY protocol, which can bring a few core concepts of web delivery that HTTP was sorely lacking. The objective of this project is to examine and assess the specification of SPDY while comparing and analyzing the current implementations of SPDY. Our goal is to build a SPDY-enabled testbed and security assessment toolkits. We call our testbed as WebChameleos that is capable of performing security assessment on various open-source SPDY implementations. The systematic toolkits for WebChameleos will be designed and developed. The vision of future web-based systems is a complex and highly sophisticated one that requiring ongoing research and analysis to continue concurrent with the changing role and face of digital information creation and usage in cyberspace. This project investigates security issues involved with web-based transactions over HTTP 2.0. The principal intellectual products resulting from this project will be security analysis framework for HTTP 2.0 SPDY, critical criteria for security-enhanced web browser that supports HTTP 2.0, and clarification of security concerns in this protocol, thereby making HTTP 2.0-based interactions more trustworthy, more reliable, and less vulnerable. This research effort is also expected to set an important direction to future research in the area of online solutions in general, and results of this project will be useful in the commercial, civilian, and mobile domains. Our work will provide methods for achieving greater control on web-based transactions in the next generation of HTTP, HTTP 2.0. This will address great protection of users HTTP 2.0-based online activities.
