verified model of safely composable 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.

@InCollection{ brucker.ea:web-components:2019,
abstract = {The trend towards ever more complex client-side web applications is unstoppable. Compared to
traditional software development, client-side web development lacks a well-established component
model, i.e., a method for easily and safely reusing already developed functionality. To address this
issue, the web community started to adopt shadow trees as part of the Document Object Model (DOM):
shadow trees allow developers to "partition" a DOM instance into parts that should be safely
separated, e.g., code modifying one part should not, unintentionally, affect other parts of the DOM.
While 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 this paper, 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.},
