Talk Title :

Service Workers VS Corporate Firewalls

Abstract :

Corporate firewalls with an HTTP(S) traffic inspection features are used to control access to the websites and block malicious and dangerous resources. Service workers are specialized JavaScript assets that act as proxies between web browsers and web servers. They aim to improve reliability by providing offline access, as well as boosting page performance. But what happens, when a service worker was used by a blocked website? I will show the results of my research about using service workers for the attack on corporate firewalls.
