I just came across the issue about MitM on Opera/Nokia browser 2013. I know, this is an "old" problem, but it seems very interesting to me.
I was wondering how Chrome on mobile handles the SSL certificates and noticed something I didn't expect. There is no possibility to check, which certificate it actually is. Who is the issuer? For whom is it issued?
Wouldn't it be possible, that Google is doing the same thing Nokia did? We just don't know it right? Is it all a question of trust?
I'm not an expert and open for every input. Thanks.
Edit: I see Google is working on it in issue #425158. They maybe aren't doing that, but since Chrome exists for more than 3 years now, it could have been possible.
