  • Posts

    • Web Animations API - grouping and sequencing animations, @………’s post
  • Info

    • Chrome 46 will allow trying out HTTP Public Key Pinning (via …-Report-Only header), @………’s post
      • HPKP allows websites to specify which public key (used in TLS sessions) belongs to a certain web server. This can prevent MITM attacks that use compromised CAs. However, misconfigured HPKP can result in users being unable to access the website. Use HPKP in “report only” mode, to safely detect potential problems in advance.
