Users often rely on websites to trust the client environment on which they run. This trust can assume that the client environment is honest about certain aspects of itself, keeps user data and intellectual property safe, and is transparent about user usage.

The data will help advertisers to better count ad impressions, block social network bots, enforce intellectual property rights, stop cheating in web games, and enhance the security of financial transactions, the presentation said.
