Abstract [en]

Our society increasingly relies on the Internet for common services like online banking, shopping, and socializing. Many of these services heavily depend on secure end-to-end transactions to transfer personal, financial, or other sensitive information. At the core of ensuring secure transactions are the TLS/SSL protocol and the ``trust'' relationships between all involved partners. In this thesis we passively monitor the HTTPS traffic between a campus network and the Internet, and characterize the certificate usage and trust relationships in this complex landscape. By comparing our observations against known vulnerabilities and problems, we provide an overview of the actual security that typical Internet users (such as the people on campus) experience. Our measurements cover both mobile and stationary users, consider the involved trust relationships, and provide insights into how the HTTPS protocol is used and the weaknesses observed in practice.
