OWASP Security Busters
Instructions are in RED text and should be removed from your document by deleting the text with the span tags. This document is intended to serve as an example of what is required of an OWASP project wiki page. The text in red serves as instructions, while the text in black serves as an example. Text in black is expected to be replaced entirely with information specific to your OWASP project.
OWASP Documentation Project Template
b. Protection against tracking mechanism, Tracking mechanism used (other than cookie)
c. Capability and usability in removing the tracking mechanism
d. Capability of the browser to show/list the data from the tracking mechanism
e. Presence of addons that list/delete the data
This project would look at different browsers that are used by general population and understand the tracking mechanisms (other than cookies) employed by the browser. These tracking mechanisms are not visible like cookies and need to be explored by getting into developer tools on the browser This sort of tracking has an impact on privacy and to some extent on security. This project would also look at how these tracking mechanisms can be removed or at least how the contents of these tracking mechanisms can be deleted
The plan to start by replicating the experiments/methodology that is found here: Belloro, S., & Mylonas, A. (2018). I know what you did last summer: New persistent tracking mechanisms in the wild. IEEE Access, 6, 52779-52792. , and has been presented by Alexios to the London Chapter meeting in November 2018. Then, we plan to expand the work by including other tracking technologies and third-party software (i.e. addons) that can be used to enhance the protection that is offered by current browsers.
Involvement in the development and promotion of Documentation Project Template is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert or a programmer to contribute. Some of the ways you can help are as follows:
This is where you can link to the key locations for project files, including setup programs, the source code repository, online documentation, a Wiki Home Page, threaded discussions about the project, and Issue Tracking system, etc.
