Web applications that require higher levels of security have various security options that can be deployed on the server. However providing security on the client consuming the service remains a challenge especially when the application runs in a web browser. While various types of security hardware can work with the user's computer, there is no convenient way for web applications to access such hardware from the web browser. To fill this gap, the authors develop a software tool called SEAM, which is a SEcure Add-on Management framework built on top of the web browser native extension framework.
