Description (last modified by mario)

Please note, that this issue is a work in progress and should be viewed as a draft

Background

Modern Browser indicate the use of secure and validated SSL connections and certificates by showing a lock sign (and sometimes the URL) in different colors. Since users got used to this, it's wise to also include this indicator to Adblock Browser.

There are 5 different certificates and certificate states, which should each be visualized in a different way:

  1. No certificate present
  1. Malicious certificate present (e.g. wrong domain or wrong subdomain)
  1. Self-signed certificate present
  1. Signed certificate present
  1. Signed EV certificate present (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_Validation_Certificate, often used by banks and the like)

What to change

For each type of certificate as described in the background section, implement the visualization as outlined below:

  1. No visualization of a secured connection whatsoever. No changes to be implemented.
  1. Display a broken padlock in front of the URL as displayed in this screenshot. Every time a website with this state of certificate is visited show a notification as currently implemented in Kitt.

Color to be used for the URL: # da001b
Text of the notification: The site's security certificate is not trusted. Do you want to proceed?

  1. Display a broken padlock in front of the URL as displayed in this screenshot. Every time a website with this state of certificate is visited show a notification as currently implemented in Kitt.

Color to be used for the URL: # da001b
Text of the notification: The site's security certificate is not trusted. Do you want to proceed?

  1. Display a padlock in front of the URL as displayed in this screenshot.
  1. Display a padlock in front of the URL and display the URL in a green color as displayed in this screenshot.

Color to be used for the URL: # 36aa46
