3Demos: A collaborative visual calculus system (audio only)

Presented by: Nikolas Nyby

I am currently a software developer at Columbia University's Center for Teaching and Learning. I've been enamored by the free software world from an early age. I believe that the only path forward for technology exists outside of proprietary interests. I love learning how things work, and I'm a lifelong Emacs stan.


The Web is used daily by billions. Even so, users are not protected from many threats by default. This presentation will introduce JShelter, a Webextension that helps in returning the browser to users. JShelter builds on top of previous Web privacy and security research. JShelter focuses on fingerprinting prevention, limitations of rich Web APIs, prevention of attacks connected to timing, and learning information about the computer, the browser, the user, and surrounding physical environment and location. JShelter provides a fingerprinting report and other feedback that can be used by future security research. Thousands of users around the world use the extension every day.
