How Unique - and Trackable - Is Your Browsesr?
The easiest way to set up an instance of Panopticlick is with
docker, but it can be installed on a host machine if desired.
Partial Installation on Host
You may need to install
python-dev for Debian-based systems.
pip install -r requirements.txt cp config_example.py config.py
Then modify the relevant variables in config.py
Now, you can run
Full Docker Installation
First, build the image
docker build -t panopticlick .
To generate self-signed certificates for the Panopticlick hosts, cd into
examples/nginx and run
Then, from the git root, run
docker run -d --name panopticlick-db \ -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=changeme \ -e MYSQL_USER=panopticlick \ -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=changeme \ -e MYSQL_DATABASE=panopticlick \ -v $(pwd)/examples/sql:/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d \ mysql --default-authentication-plugin=mysql_native_password docker run -d --name panopticlick-app \ --link panopticlick-db:db \ panopticlick docker run -d --name panopticlick-nginx \ --link panopticlick-app:app \ -v $(pwd)/examples/nginx/extra:/etc/nginx/extra \ -v $(pwd)/examples/nginx/conf.d:/etc/nginx/conf.d \ -p 443:443 \ nginx
Unless you've changed the server names specified in
config.py, you'll have to add the following line to your
127.0.0.1 panopticlick.eff.org trackersimulator.org firstpartysimulator.org firstpartysimulator.net eviltracker.net do-not-tracker.org
If you generated the certs yourself, in Firefox you'll have to go into private browsing mode to see the "I Understand the Risks" dialogue. You may also have to manually go to each of the above domains and go through the certificate exception process for each one in order for the application to be fully functional. Or with chrome, you can start chrome with the
--ignore-certificate-errors flag, but beware this will ignore all certificate errors.
