FP-STALKER: Tracking Browser Fingerprint Evolutions

Antoine Vastel, Pierre Laperdrix, Walter Rudametkin, Romain Rouvoy
2018 2018 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (SP)  
Yet, despite these frequent changes, we show that browser fingerprints can still be linked, thus enabling long-term tracking. FP-STALKER is an approach to link browser fingerprint evolutions.  ...  To evaluate FP-STALKER, we conduct an empirical study using 98, 598 fingerprints we collected from 1, 905 distinct browser instances.  ...  By doing so, FP-STALKER captures the atomic evolutions that occur between two consecutive fingerprints from the same browser instance.  ...

Long-Term Observation on Browser Fingerprinting: Users' Trackability and Perspective

Gaston Pugliese, Christian Riess, Freya Gassmann, Zinaida Benenson
2020 Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies  
AbstractBrowser fingerprinting as a tracking technique to recognize users based on their browsers' unique features or behavior has been known for more than a decade.  ...  We present the results of a 3-year online study on browser fingerprinting with more than 1,300 users.  ...  Do-not-track" as user-triggered evolutions [3] .  ...

Browser Fingerprinting: A survey [article]

Pierre Laperdrix and Nataliia Bielova and Benoit Baudry and Gildas Avoine
2019 arXiv   pre-print
With this paper, we survey the research performed in the domain of browser fingerprinting, while providing an accessible entry point to newcomers in the field.  ...  We analyze the related work in detail to understand the composition of modern fingerprints and see how this technique is currently used online.  ...  By collecting a fingerprint every three days, the algorithm behind FP-Stalker was capable of tracking a device for 51.8 days on average.  ...

2022 pre-print
In the second scenario, we integrate a one-shot learning version of our technique into a state-of-the-art browser fingerprint tracking algorithm.  ...  DrawnApart makes two contributions to the state of the art in browser fingerprinting.  ...  To track a user, an adversary must link fingerprint evolutions into a single coherent chain.  ...
