CS55: Analyzing Google Secure Search (CPE:1.5)
This course analyzes a standard Google search (http://www.google.com) and then looks at the communications during a "Google Secure Search" (announced in 2010). Key features of Google's Secure Search were touted as "encrypted searches" and no REFER information being passed on to the target site. We examine the traffic to see if we can really hide our search terms and not let the target know from whence we came. Interesting.
