Host Fingerprinting for Web Servers Authentication

Ezio Lefons, Sebastiano Pizzutilo, Filippo Tangorra

Abstract

Fingerprinting is a biometric technique for computing a unique profile associated to a physical person for authentication purpose. It has been successfully applied also to software entities by using hash functions for integrity checking after downloading. In the paper, we propose a fingerprinting algorithm to identify a machine during a client-server authentication process. In detail, this host identifier can be used for connecting to a database server without using an account storing a plain-text password. After the presentation of experimental results, we show some real scenarios where this solution can be applied.
