Jessica Su

You Can’t be Anonymous on the Internet

Jessica Su, a Stanford computer science PhD student, was a member of a team of researchers working on what they called the Footprints Project. The Project, an online experiment which ended last October, sought to determine if individuals could be identified based on their anonymous web browsing history and information about their Twitter usage.

Jessica will describe the experiment and the technology used, review the results after 300 individuals had participated, and comment on the growing body of research highlighting privacy vulnerabilities on the web.
