Abstract:


This research proposes the detection of cross-site scripting in web application by using web proxy during runtime on a client side. Cross-site scripting is the top three security problems of web application. Most solutions detected and solved the problem on a server side. However, users do not have authority to edit anything on the server. Proposed application shows the risk of cross-site scripting. Users have to decide to agree or to ignore, in order to visit the web application. The experiment verifies that the application detects interesting patterns with few overhead.
