Web Tracking through invisible Web beacons
Imane Fouad made an internship from March 2017 until August 2017, followed by a second internship from October 2017 until December 2017. She is selected for a PhD in INDES, and will start on 1 January 2017.
Imane Fouad has run automated Web experiments using the OpenWPM platform and performed large-scale measurement of the Web beacon tracking on the Web. She detected which companies use Web beacon, how this technology works, and is currently analysing cookie-based tracking techniques such as redirection chains and cookie synching with the ultimate goal to provide a fine-grained classification of existing Web tracking technologies.
