> This talk will discuss the past methods used for cross-site scripting
> (XSS) defense that were only partially effective. Learning from these
> lessons, we will also discuss present day defensive methodologies that are
> effective, but place an undue burden on the developer. We will then finish
> with a discussion of future XSS defense mythologies that shift the burden
> of XSS defense from the developer to various frameworks. These include

> Security Policy, and Javascript sandboxes such as the Google CAJA project
> and JSReg.
