Power to the Webdevs
Preliminary results of our Usability Study indicate that deploying Trusted Types even on a small Web application can get complicated. We do not want to promote our suggested changes to get rid of those roadblocks and just hope that all browser vendors implement our suggestions. Also, we do not want to design a new mechanism with one or more big browser vendors and then force the smaller companies to catch up with the current implementation. Instead, we want to include multiple perspectives into the design of Trusted Types. Thus, we invite real-world Web developers, security experts, browser vendors, and Web security researchers such that we can find ways to mitigate or eradicate the roadblocks of Trusted-Types.
The timeline is given as a rough guide and may be subject to change.
Step 1: Recruitment | August-October 2022
We will invite real-world Web developers, security experts, browser vendors, and Web security researchers that want to help us to improve the Web. Web developers can fill in our screening survey to sign-up for the study.
Step 2: Online Issue Discussion | October-December 2022
Based on the Roadblocks of our Usability Study we will start an online discussion (presumably on GitHub) how those and other problems can be mitigated or even resolved.
Step 3: "New" Trusted Types | December-January 2022/23
After discussing solutions online we will gather in focus groups in an online video conference to discuss the ideas and how they might be implemented.
Want to influence the design of a new Web secruity mechanism?
We are looking for Web Developers to help us improve Trusted Types. You may participate in either one, or both of the studies. Fill in our screening survey to sign-up.
