A users online actions and behaviours inside of a browser can help to define who they are. That's the basis of a new patent from IBM researchers designed to help limit the risk on online ecommerce fraud.
"At a high-level what we have patented is the ability to help fraudulent transactions before they occur," Brian O'Connell, IBM Master Inventor, told eSecurityPlanet. "We look at a lot of web browser metrics that we transmit to a server on the backend and before a transaction takes place we compare the transaction to a profile based on previous interactions from the user with the website."
