HTML5 Integrity and Performance

The research involved in this internship focuses on the performance and integrity of HTML5. In terms of performance, the intern will design and implement a set of tests that will be used to analyze the performance of HTML5 applications. These tests will focus on measuring the computational performance, network performance, as well as rendering performance of such applications. The results of this research will allow Irdeto to make informed decisions about security and performance tradeoffs in their HTML5 protection activities. In terms of integrity, the research aims to provide a certain level of assurance/confidence to advertisers that inject their advertisements on HTML5 pages. Essentially, we want to be able to guarantee that the user-detector JavaScript code injected by the advertiser has not been tampered with. We also want to make sure that it is not being displayed by websites that are not expected/approved, and finally, we want to ensure that the JavaScript code is not being manipulated by other code in the same context. The results of this research will provide means to improve the security and integrity of HTML5 applications.
