The scripting environment on a page is controlled by: publisher (page  
source), user (bookmarklets, extensions), browser vendor and possibly  
others via page's vulnerabilities (XSS).

Are all of them considered adversaries then?

How does this security system establish chain of trust? Where does the  
chain end (Content Decryption Module, browser, OS, display)?
