Submitted by JackyBrown
JackyBrown (1189791) writes "There was a study some time ago "Pixel Perfect: Fingerprinting Canvas in HTML5". They propose a new browser fingerprinting method: render text and WebGL scenes to a canvas element, then examine the pixels produced. The fact is it will produce different images on a different web browsers, depending on environment on which it was launched.

The proof-of-concept demonstration with a black-box collected signatures db, and the original project for a white-box browsers examination."
