Overview

The third assignment for our project was to propose an enhancement and figure out how to best implement it into (version 2.03 of) Google Chrome. Using the tools and knowledge gained from the two former assignments (conceptual & concrete architecture derivations), we produced what lies in the following presentations & report.

Our conclusions about the current feature and how our implementation will affect it (taken from the presentation):

Current implementation

  • Passwords stored in a general purpose repository

Proposed implementation

  • Passwords stored in separate, secure DB
  • Part of Chrome itself as opposed to an extension
  • Adds following enhanced features
    • Master password
    • Searching
    • Import/Export
  • Number 1 NFR: security

Something to Remember

All of our group’s members are undergraduate students doing this project as a learning experience, using limited information to arrive at our conclusions, so they may or may not be correct. We faced many limitations in trying to arrive at our conclusions, which you can check out at the end of either the presentation or the deliverable. If you have any comments on the content (positive or otherwise), feel free to post them at the bottom of this page.
