03 Mar MIT, Harvard Researchers Propose Privacy Protection System for Users
Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (MIT CSAIL) and Harvard University recently said that they have developed a system which can help developers set up private browsing measures for their pages.
The system, called Veil, will convert cleartext URLs in data and convert them into blinded references which attackers won’t be able to trace back to their original forms. The researchers said that Veil should address information leakage when using a browsers privacy mode.
However, they added that Veil can only work against local attackers who access the user’s computer after the termination of a private browsing session
