Firefox uvodi novu bezbednosnu funkciju za zaštitu od napada na veb stranicama

Mozilla, the organization behind the popular web browser Firefox, has announced the implementation of a new security feature called “Trusted Types.” This decision comes after a lengthy discussion that has been ongoing since 2017, with the aim of reducing the risk of certain types of web attacks.

Trusted Types is a new mechanism that will help prevent cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks based on the Document Object Model (DOM) on popular websites. This feature will provide an optional mechanism for websites to protect themselves from such attacks by limiting the attack surface through Content Security Policy and content filtering mechanisms.

While Firefox will implement Trusted Types, it will not be immediately available to users due to ongoing technical issues that are still being resolved. Mozilla is confident in the effectiveness of this feature, which has already shown results in the Chromium ecosystem, where the frequency of DOM-XSS attacks has decreased since this mechanism was first introduced three years ago.

In essence, when a user uses Firefox with Trusted Types enabled, the web browser expects a “TrustedHTML” object instead of a text snippet, thus adding a new layer of security to existing web pages. This innovation is part of Firefox’s efforts to join Chrome in reducing the risk of attacks on users and contributing to a safer browsing experience.
