Summary : "The web has a Confused Deputy problem at the heart of many of our hardest security challenges. Tricking a browser or site into using latent credentials and authentication information for other parties and sites is the game and XSS is how it's played. With CSP, sandboxed iframes, and the next version of Chrome Apps, Google is tackling these the challenges for app authors head-on, making it easier than not to build secure apps and removing the potential for confusion by removing ambient authority itself. This talk explores why, how, and when we might finally improve the baseline security level of new apps."
