Validating iframes

The result is that we no longer have to blindly trust that some piece of embedded content won’t take advantage of privileges it shouldn’t be using.It simply won’t have access to the functionality in the first place.

id=3028 Thanks, --Brian Would two items on the same page with the same title be confusing?

Maybe the titles should be "New York State Universal Navigation Header" and "New York State Universal Footer" just to avoid this confusion.

Abstaining from either isn’t really an option, but both increase the risk that Something Bad™ could happen on your site.

Each widget that you embed – every ad, every social media widget – is a potential attack vector for those with malicious intent: Content Security Policy (CSP) can mitigate the risks associated with both of these types of content by giving you the ability to whitelist specifically trusted sources of script and other content.

I have no idea what's really helpful and what isn't because I don't have the FRAME of reference. Again, I think hiring someone to test this stuff would be a huge benefit to us.

Would two items on the same page with the same title be confusing? The description should explain what will happen and what information they will be accessing if the user "steps into" the i Frame and possibly even instructions on how to "step out" again if they need to or "skip past", though I'd hazard a guess that a screen reader should already have this functionality.

Sure wish we had a permanent professional employee who is differently-abled to check these things with an informed mind.

"New York State Universal Header - Step in for New York State information and navigation or skip to view site-specific content" or something like that.

If it doesn’t require Flash, turning off plugin support shouldn’t be a problem.

We’re as secure as we can be if we follow the principle of least privilege, and block each and every feature that isn’t directly relevant to functionality we’d like to use.

Embed it please, Browser, but don’t let it break my site.” In essence, we’re looking for a mechanism that will allow us to grant content we embed only the minimum level of capability necessary to do its job.
