Georgia Tech Imagines Truly Private Web Browsing

Cybersecurity center

A new privacy mode, called “UCOGNITO,” has been proposed that simplifies a browser’s approach to privacy, and, in doing so, makes it harder for data to be recorded locally when a user would naturally expect that such local records wouldn’t be kept. The mode was presented by a research team at the Georgia Institute of Technology in a paper for the Association for Computing Machinery’s 22nd Conference on Computer and Communications Security in Denver last month.
