what to expect

Device Identification, also called Device Fingerprinting, is a relatively young technology tool used in online fraud prevention to establish a unique ID for a device that is attempting to access a website. The intent of device identification in a big picture context is to establish an ID that can be replicated across user access attempts while providing uniqueness such to differentiate one entity from all others accessing the site. Device Identification is not a fraud solution, it is a tool within a solution, and the point of this white paper is to understand the methods you can employ to fully integrate Device Identification into your fraud solution so you can move beyond the device.
