Perspectives - Firefox 3 Extension

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science and College of Engineering say they have devised a low-cost system that aims to protect user privacy and improve the security of private online communications. The system, dubbed Perspectives, targets man in the middle attacks by employing the help of friendly sites or "notaries" that aid in authenticating websites used in secure transactions.

See the list of all known issues. By default Firefox blocks installation with a warning at the top of your window. You must override that warning. This extension works only with Firefox 3.0 or newer.

The following link installs Perspective on Linux (32-bit/64-bit), Windows, and OS X (Intel/PPC):
