Abstract

Identity theft is the fastest-growing crime in the world. According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), identity theft is the top concern of people contacting the agency, and has now passed drug trafficking as the number-one crime in the world. Nearly everyone I know has a friend that has had a run-in with some form of identity theft. And a likely spot to find plenty of information about someone, in order to masquerade as them, is their computer. And more specifically, the browser: the gateway people use to access the Internet. Threats to online privacy can be reduced by leveraging some very practical security with regards to our Internet browsers.
