We present a novel framework for deriving formal security guarantees against traffic side-channels, and we propose algorithms for the efficient derivation of such guarantees for web applications. We demonstrate the utility of our techniques in two case studies, where we derive formal guarantees for the security of a regional-language Wikipedia and an auto-complete input field.
