Project/Thesis Title : Unauthorized Data Leakage from an Organisation through Web Browser Fingerprinting Vulnerability
Abstract : We propose and examine an enhanced way of web browser fingerprinting that is capable to circumvent typical corporate network boundary protection devices. We compare the proposed
enhanced fingerprinting with legacy fingerprinting techniques in network environments secured by VPNs, proxy servers, and NAT. The advanced web browser fingerprinting technique proposed provides more reliable results in corporate network environments than the existing browser
fingerprinting techniques. While the legacy web browser fingerprinting techniques are causative to false positives, the proposed additional attributes collected through WebRTC fingerprinting can eliminate the false positive results.
