Device fingerprint with AnyConnect embedded browser

    Applies to:
  • SecureAuth Identity Platform
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • Cloud
  • Hybrid
  • On Premises
  • Version Affected:  All Versions


    AnyConnect embedded browser doesn't create device fingerprint.



    The issue occurs when Public/Private Mode option on the workflow tab is changed from Public mode only or Public and Private modes to Private mode only and AnyConnect embedded browser contains SecureAuthLoginsecureauthXX=PUBLIC cookie.



    Rename C:\Users\__your_username___\AppData\Local\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\EBWebView folder to force clear the cookies and and sign in to AnyConnect again to set only SecureAuthLoginsecureauthXX=PRIVATE cookie as fingerprints work with PRIVATE mode only.


    Special Considerations (optional as needed):  

    Renaming EBWebView folder clears out the cached passwords/permissions/cookies.
