Snoopy: A Webpage Fingerprinting Framework with Finite Query Model for Mass-Surveillance [article]

Gargi Mitra, Prasanna Karthik Vairam, Sandip Saha, Nitin Chandrachoodan, V. Kamakoti
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Webpage fingerprinting, an attack that analyzes encrypted traffic, can identify the webpages visited by a user in a given website.  ...  Internet users are vulnerable to privacy attacks despite the use of encryption.  ...  However, more fine-grained information such as the identity of webpages (a website can have many webpages) visited by the users on a targeted website could be much more useful to the attackers.  ...

The web browser factor in traffic analysis attacks

Sami Zhioua
2015 Security and Communication Networks  
To this end, five fine-grained measures are used to point out very subtle differences in the network traffic of each web browser.  ...  Website fingerprinting is a known type of traffic analysis attacks that aims to identify which websites are visited in encrypted traffic traces.  ...  It is very similar to the previous measure (OOV) but is more fine grained because the focus is on the packet orders rather than the object orders.  ...

Peek-a-Boo, I Still See You: Why Efficient Traffic Analysis Countermeasures Fail

Kevin P. Dyer, Scott E. Coull, Thomas Ristenpart, Thomas Shrimpton
2012 2012 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy  
We consider the setting of HTTP traffic over encrypted tunnels, as used to conceal the identity of websites visited by a user.  ...  As just one of our results, we show that despite the use of traffic morphing, one can use only total upstream and downstream bandwidth to identifywith 98% accuracy-which of two websites was visited.  ...  Hiding packet lengths is not sufficient. We initiate a study of classifiers that do not directly use fine-grained features such as individual packet lengths.  ...

Feature Selection for Website Fingerprinting

Junhua Yan, Jasleen Kaur
2018 Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies  
Prior work has focused only on a limited set of features, and does not help understand the extents of fingerprint-ability.  ...  Website fingerprinting based on TCP/IP headers is of significant relevance to several Internet entities.  ...  Grouping semantically-similar features: In contrast to [33] , we do not focus on analyzing the importance of each fine-grained feature (such as the maximum packet size and median packet size) in a traffic  ...
