Font Based Fingerprinting Papers

Hi all,

As promised, here are some papers describing the accuracy and (in two cases) frequency of using font enumeration to finger print browsers.

I’ll try to come up with a first, goof-attempt at a proposed change well in advance of our next call too.

Laperdrix, Pierre, Walter Rudametkin, and Benoit Baudry. "Beauty and the beast: Diverting modern web browsers to build unique browser fingerprints." 2016 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (SP). IEEE, 2016.

Nikiforakis, Nick, et al. "Cookieless monster: Exploring the ecosystem of web-based device fingerprinting." 2013 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy. IEEE, 2013.

Eckersley, Peter. "How unique is your web browser?." International Symposium on Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2010.
