LocalStorage objects

HTML5 LocalStorage is client-side storage introduced by HTML5 and supported by all major browsers. Data stored there is not sent automatically by the browser (unlike HTTP cookies) but is accessible to JavaScript code permanently, until deleted by the application or cleaned manually by the user. These object can be thus compared to first-party persistent cookies from privacy point of view.

SessionStorage objects

HTML5 SessionStorage is client-side storage introduced by HTML5 and supported by all major browsers. Data stored there is not sent automatically by the browser (unlike HTTP cookies) but is accessible to JavaScript code during the browser session only, so until the browser window or tab is closed. These object can be thus compared to first-party session cookies from privacy point of view.

HTTP security-related headers assessment

Security score
8

Security-related HTTP headers

  • X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN

    Instructs the browser if the current website can be embedded in HTML frame by another website. Since this allows the parent website to control the framed page, this creates a potential for data theft attacks ("clickjacking") and most sensitive websites won't allow them to be framed at all (deny) or just allow parts of them to be embedded in frames created by themselves only (samesite).

  • X-XSS-Protection: 1; mode=block

    Controls an Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) filters built into the majority of web browsers. The filter is usually turned on by default anyway, but requirement to set the header to 1 became part of canonical set of "secure" HTTP headers. Over time, vulnerabilities in the "sanitizing" mode filter were found, so 1; mode=block became the recommended value. Some companies decided that they don't really need a browser-side XSS filter to mess with their web services which are XSS-free anyway and they became consciously disabling the XSS filter by setting the header to 0.

  • X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff

    A non-standard but widely accepted header introduced originally by Microsoft to disable "content sniffing" or heuristic content type discovery in absence or mismatch of a proper HTTP Content-Type declaration, which led to a number of web attacks. In general, presence of the header with its only defined value of nosniff is considered as part of a properly secured HTTP response.
