Browser Fingerprint Coding Methods Increasing the Effectiveness of User Identification in the Web Traffic
TLDR
New algorithms for coding and comparing fingerprints are presented, in which the values of parameters with low stability and low entropy are especially taken into account.
Tracking Browser Fingerprint using Rule Based Algorithm
TLDR
This work explores the diversity and stability of browser fingerprint by modifying the rule-based algorithm and employing twenty (20) attributes to identify promising high value information to track how device information evolve and consistent in a period of time.
Actions speak louder than words: Semi-supervised learning for browser fingerprinting detection
TLDR
Over one hundred device-class fingerprinting scripts present on hundreds of domains are identified, the first time device- class fingerprinting has been measured in the wild, and the power of a sparse vector representation and semi-supervised learning to complement and extend existing tracking detection techniques.
Web Privacy Measurement in Real-Time Bidding Systems. A Graph-Based Approach to RTB System Classification
TLDR
It transpires that the interconnection between partners in an RTB network is caused by the data flows of the companies themselves due to their specializations in ad technology, and a Graph-Based Methodological Approach (GBMA) controls the situation of differences in consent implementations in European countries.
The Gaze and Mouse Signal as additional Source for User Fingerprints in Browser Applications
TLDR
In this work, different data sources for browser fingerprints are inspected and the influence of all possible combinations of the three information sources for user recognition are shown and described in detail.

Device Fingerprinting: Analysis of Chosen Fingerprinting Methods
TLDR
In this paper, features and corresponding optimal implementations that may enrich and improve an open-source fingerprinting library Fingerprintjs2 that is daily consumed by hundreds of websites are discovered.
JavaScript-based device fingerprinting mitigation using personal HTTP proxy
TLDR
A mechanism to mitigate the existence of device fingerprinting process by utilizing personal HTTP proxy, which utilizes a two-stage filtering process; header-based filtering and content- based filtering.
FPDetective: dusting the web for fingerprinters
TLDR
The design, implementation and deployment of FPDetective, a framework for the detection and analysis of web-based fingerprinters, are reported on, showing that there needs to be a change in the way users, companies and legislators engage with fingerprinting.
Cookieless Monster: Exploring the Ecosystem of Web-Based Device Fingerprinting
TLDR
By analyzing the code of three popular browser-fingerprinting code providers, it is revealed the techniques that allow websites to track users without the need of client-side identifiers and how fragile the browser ecosystem is against fingerprinting through the use of novel browser-identifying techniques.
Device fingerprinting for augmenting web authentication: classification and analysis of methods
TLDR
This work summarizes and classify 29 available methods and their properties; defines attack models relevant to augmenting passwords for user authentication; and qualitatively compare them based on stability, repeatability, resource use, client passiveness, difficulty of spoofing, and distinguishability offered.
Device Fingerprinting in Wireless Networks: Challenges and Opportunities
TLDR
This paper aims to provide a detailed treatment on developing novel wireless security solutions using device fingerprinting techniques, and to introduce a comprehensive taxonomy of wireless features that can be used in fingerprinting.
Disguised Chromium Browser: Robust Browser, Flash and Canvas Fingerprinting Protection
TLDR
This work demonstrates the first anti-fingerprinting strategy, which protects against Flash fingerprinting without deactivating it, provides robust and undetectable anti-canvas fingerprinting, and uses a large set of real word data to hide the actual system and browser properties without losing usability.
Poster : Detection and Prevention of Web-based Device Fingerprinting
TLDR
This study presents FPBlock, a system that detects web-based device fingerprinting and prevents users from being fingerprinted, and takes a different approach from those of existing countermeasures, which randomize the value of properties or rely on a blacklist and the DNT header.
PriVaricator: Deceiving Fingerprinters with Little White Lies
TLDR
In PriVaricator the power of randomization is used to "break" linkability by exploring a space of parameterized randomization policies, and renders all the fingerprinters tested ineffective, while causing minimal damage on a set of 1000 Alexa sites on which they were tested.
User Tracking on the Web via Cross-Browser Fingerprinting
TLDR
It is shown that a part of the IP address, the availability of a specific font set, the time zone, and the screen resolution are enough to uniquely identify most users of the five most popular web browsers, and that user agent strings are fairly effective but fragile identifiers of a browser instance.
