HTTP Header Survey

A survey of Alexa's top 10,000 websites on the Internet was conducted to measure the usage of security-related HTTP headers, mobile awareness and potential information leakage. We did this by grabbing the banners of those websites with 18 different user agents using a modified UATester script, and analyzing the resulting HTTP headers.

Wireless Router Database

With minimal effort it is now possible to pinpoint the physical location of a wireless router from a MAC address using services such as Google and Skyhook. In our research, we provide a simple tool for doing such lookups via Google, as well as an example case study with routers running DD-WRT.
