Nowadays everyone uses web browsers on a daily basis for various tasks such as reading emails or purchasing on ecommerce portals. Web developers often forget that a browser is a piece of software that can be used as remote code execution engine, an can be used to inject malicious code either by exploiting an Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability or by executing a MITM attack. The focus of this talk is to explain how new browser headers (HSTS, HPKP, CSP) can help to easily add an extra layer of security in order to defend against common web security vulnerabilities. These could be the talking points: -Introduction about web browsers security,explaining why secure transport is important and what HTTPS provides in terms of confidentiality, authenticity and integrity -Analyze new headers, such as HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), HTTP Public Key Pinning (HPKP) and Content Security Policy (CSP),explaining how they work for avoid HTTPS,XSS and Clickjacking attacks.
