We present FPRandom, a modified version of Firefox that adds randomness to mitigate the most recent fingerprinting algorithms, namely canvas fingerprinting, AudioContext fingerprinting and the unmasking  ...  Our work aims at mitigating the risk of browser fingerprinting for users privacy by 'breaking' the stability of a fingerprint over time.  ...  In this paper, we explore the use of browsers' flexibility to prevent tracking through advanced fingerprinting techniques along with an implementation in a Firefox browser called FPRandom.  ...

The Effectiveness of Privacy Enhancing Technologies against Fingerprinting [article]

We find the Tor Browser Bundle to be the most effective PET amongst the set we tested. We find that some PETs have inconsistent behaviors, which can do more harm than good.  ...  Observational methods enable scale and drawing from the browsers currently in real-world use.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Milan Ganai for investigating how to automate the use of PETs on Windows.  ...

As a consequence, we can use randomized controlled experiments, traditionally used to detect causal effects, to detect information flow through black box systems.  ...  They utilize collected data about us to make critical decisions such as those related to credit approval and insurance premiums.  ...  Indeed, selecting a random key is the core of many security algorithms, such as encryption.  ...
