1 - About

Fingerprinting a user. By collecting enough characteristics of a user's system, an individual user's browser's “digital fingerprint” can be computed.

Example:

  • fonts a user has installed
  • the exact list of which features a user agents supports.
  • the maximum allowed stack depth for recursion in script.
  • features that describe the user's environment
  • the user's time zone.
