Unearthing trackers of the past: UW computer scientists reveal the history of third-party web tracking

At the USENIX Security Conference in Austin, Texas, a team of University of Washington researchers on Aug. 12 presented the first-ever comprehensive analysis of third-party web tracking across three decades and a new tool, TrackingExcavator, which they developed to extract and analyze tracking behaviors on a given web page. They saw a four-fold increase in third-party tracking on top sites from 1996 to 2016, and mapped the growing complexity of trackers stretching back decades.

IMPACT is Advancing Cyber Security R&D

To develop advanced knowledge, test products and technologies and prove the utility of research in large-scale network environments, the R&D community requires real-world data. To meet this need, the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Cyber Security Division (CSD) has created the Information Marketplace for Policy and Analysis of Cyber-risk & Trust (IMPACT), a publicly available electronic library to provide the industrial and academic research community access to infrastructure and event data.

Your Smartwatch Is Giving Away Your ATM PIN

Wearable devices can give away your passwords, according to new research. In the paper “Friend or Foe?: Your Wearable Devices Reveal Your Personal PIN” scientists from Binghamton University and the Stevens Institute of Technology combined data from embedded sensors in wearable technologies, such as smartwatches and fitness trackers, along with a computer algorithm to crack private PINs and passwords with 80-percent accuracy on the first try and more than 90-percent accuracy after three tries.
