comment How can one share information using the 'host-proof' paradigm?
@PaĆ­loEbermann: I understand that risk and know some people have made attempts to fix it, or accept it as a flaw and do what everyone else does - trust the server. There are still benefits to never transferring plain text data to the server, but your link and a few others have opened my eyes to a few of Javascript's other shortcomings. What do you think of using Adobe Flex/Air, as they're compiled? There appear to be some good crypto libraries available. I'm not strong when it comes to Flex, but it seems to fit the bill of compiled client-side code, which could be verified upon download.

These are very important questions. My aim is to have the ability to store and share account information with only authorized users and no unauthorized users. The theory is that this application could be hosted on a shared host or cloud environment without having too much trust in the host itself. Rather than 'harden' the environment, just not trust it too much in the first place. Please check out this link on ajax patterns: Host-Proof Hosting
