Wang, Congli, Lin, Jingqiang, Li, Bingyu, Li, Qi, Wang, Qiongxiao, Zhang, Xiaokun.  2019.  Analyzing the Browser Security Warnings on HTTPS Errors. ICC 2019 - 2019 IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC). :1—6.
HTTPS provides authentication, data confidentiality, and integrity for secure web applications in the Internet. In order to establish secure connections with the target website but not a man-in-the-middle or impersonation attacker, a browser shows security warnings to users, when different HTTPS errors happen (e.g., it fails to build a valid certificate chain, or the certificate subject does not match the domain visited). Each browser implements its own design of warnings on HTTPS errors, to balance security and usability. This paper presents a list of common HTTPS errors, and we investigate the browser behaviors on each error. Our study discloses browser defects on handling HTTPS errors in terms of cryptographic algorithm, certificate verification, name validation, HPKP, and HSTS.
