The OAA Hub 2.0 software prevents attacks by isolating untrusted widgets from the main application and other widgets and by preventing access to user credentials. IBM plans to implement OAA Hub 2.0 within the upcoming IBM Mashup Center 2.0 product release. With this OAA technology, a widget won't be able to "steal" information from another widget on a web page. This standard provides another step toward interoperability among various mashup platform providers and promotes the growing mashup ecosystem while continuing to protect sensitive information.
