Machine FingerPrint (MFP)
Machine FingerPrint (also referred to as Device fingerprinting or PC fingerprinting in industry terms) represents the browser information and device identification attributes. These attributes include operating system, installed software applications, screen display settings, multimedia components, and other attributes. The attributes are gathered from the end users system and are analyzed to generate a device risk profile in realtime. Some of the attributes that are collected from the end user\xE2\x80\x99s device include:
- Operating system name and version
- Screen settings (such as height, width, color depth)
- System information (such as time zone, language, system locale)
For every transaction performed by the end user, CA Risk Authentication matches the corresponding MFP stored in its database with the incoming information. If this match percentage (%) is equal to or more than the value specified for the Device-MFP Match rule in Administration Console, then it is considered "safe".
