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.

HTTP security-related headers assessment

Security score
1

Security-related HTTP headers

  • 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.

  • X-Powered-By: Phusion Passenger 6.0.2

    A non-standard and purely informational, but still very widespread header, whose only purpose is to advertise the name and optionally version of the software used to run the web server.

  • Expect-CT: max-age=604800, report-uri="https://report-uri.cloudflare.com/cdn-cgi/beacon/expect-ct"

    The Expect-CT header allows sites to opt in to reporting and/or enforcement of Certificate Transparency requirements, which prevents the use of misissued certificates for that site from going unnoticed. When a site enables the Expect-CT header, they are requesting that the browser check that any certificate for that site appears in public CT logs.

Sub-resources

Sub-resources

Most web pages load a number of sub-resources such as images, style sheets (CSS), JavaScript files, web fonts, audio or video files and other web pages in frames. Each of these sub-resources may be loaded from the same server (first-party resource) or servers belonging to other parties (third-party resources). In the latter case, the third-party will see a request coming from your browser with the information on the originating page and it can set its own cookies, both of which are frequently used for user tracking. Note that the cookies set by these sub-resources are already recorded in our cookie statistics for this page.
