abstract = {At its core, the Document Object Model (DOM) defines a tree-like
data structure for representing documents in general and HTML
documents in particular. It forms the heart of any rendering engine
of modern web browsers. Formalizing the key concepts of the DOM is
a pre-requisite for the formal reasoning over client-side JavaScript
programs as well as for the analysis of security concepts in modern
web browsers. In this paper, we present a formalization of the core DOM,
with focus on the node-tree and the operations defined on node-trees,
in Isabelle/HOL. We use the formalization to verify the functional
correctness of the most important functions defined in the DOM standard.
Moreover, our formalization is (1) extensible, i.e., can be extended without
the need of re-proving already proven properties and (2) executable, i.e.,
we can generate executable code from our specification.},

abstract = { While the DOM with shadow trees provide the technical basis for defining web components, the DOM
standard neither defines the concept of web components nor specifies the safety properties that web
components should guarantee. Consequently, the standard also does not discuss how or even if the
methods for modifying the DOM respect component boundaries.

In AFP entry, we present a formally verified model of web components and define safety properties
which ensure that different web components can only interact with each other using well-defined
interfaces. Moreover, our verification of the application programming interface (API) of the DOM
revealed numerous invariants that implementations of the DOM API need to preserve to ensure the
integrity of components. },
