Abstract:

This work has the goal of uncovering the obfuscation that is becoming common in web tracking methods and, in particular, a popular tracking method called canvas fingerprinting. The proposed approach could also be used in the future for other tracking techniques. Our tests seek also to uncover web tracking methods not situated in the home pages, but in the sub links, in order to discover if there is a substantial difference.
