WORKING SESSION SPECIFICS
Objectives
  1. Clearly there is a need for warnings that users understand and that conveys the right information. Perhaps we can agree on some guidelines or at least exchange lessons learned.
  2. How should browsers signal invalid SSL certs to the enduser? Are we helping security right now? What to do about 50 % of users clicking through warnings? Mozilla replaces the padlock with a site identity button i Firefox 4. "Larry" will inform the user of the site's status. Google recently tried out a skull & bones icon for bad certs but moved back to padlocks again.
  3. How should browsers communicate other kinds of information such as privacy, malware warnings, "not visited before" etc? Forbes had an interesting example of how to visualize privacy.
