Browser extension that allows users to see the certificate quality of websites.
Chexxo analyses the certificates of the websites you visit and displays the certificate’s quality as well as the certificate details. Chexxo differentiates between the three quality classes defined by the CA/Browser Forum which are “domain validated”, “organization validated” and “extended validated”.
Chexxo furthermore blocks requests to websites of which the certificate quality has decreased since the users last visit. This behavior can be controlled in the extension settings.
Since Chromium based browsers do not provide an option to read the certificate from the webRequest-API, a server component is needed in order for Chexxo to function properly. Therefore, we have written a simple server which provides the extension with the certificate for the requested webpage. You may host this server yourself, see https://github.com/Chexxo/Server for more information.
The server only gets the URL of the webpage which should be checked. The server logs only contain the URL, a UUID and the error if one occurred. The UUID is newly generated for every occurring error and cannot be traced back to a user unless you provide us with your local log for debugging purposes. This does not happen automatically therefore by default we cannot associate a URL with a user.
