mac default iconSSLGuard For Mac Publisher's description

A Firefox add-on that protects you against certain types of SSL mitm attacks

How many of us use to type the whole addresses in the URL bar, including the protocol http or the https part? Probably very few of us.

This is why most of the user-friendly websites that use the https protocol to protect sensible data from being sent insecurely (like credentials), let you write the location without https:// and then redirect you to the secure website automatically.

This is where the problems begin.

The attacker can manage the secure session and send back clear pages to us. Also the attacker will take care of replacing all https occurrences in all pages with http.

By using this method all you requests will be sent in clear, because the browser has no need (as it doesn't see any https:// link) to enstablish a secure connection

SSLGuard will verify weather the websites listed in the plugin are effectively visited the secure way through https!

This list is already populated by default, but you can of course add new websites within Firefox (Tools -> SSLGuard Preferences). The dialog is pretty intuitive, and you can even use some basic regular expessions in the entries.
