*During our recent F2F, there were some questions from CAs and other
browsers about research that has informed some of the decisions on how the
Chrome UI, particularly the security UI, has evolved. Google has
participated in, as well as authored, several research studies that pertain
to these topics. In order to ensure the quality of methodology, scale, and
analysis, each of these papers underwent review by Conference committee or
a group of peers as defined by the publication venue.A list of some of the
peer-reviewed research published by Googlers in widely well-respected
journals and conferences: - Alice in Warningland: A Large-Scale Field Study
of Browser Security Warning Effectiveness
<https://ai.google/research/pubs/pub41323>- Your Reputation Precedes You:

conversations, there were discussions about other research into the PKI
ecosystem. A few resources that CAs may not have been aware of, also
appearing in top-tier conferences and publications: - The Security Impact
of HTTPS Interception <https://zakird.com/papers/https_interception.pdf>- A
