Summary

I downloaded the code for the DeterFox browser from GitHub and attempted to build it. After several web searches and fixes of configuration files and source code fragments the build finally finished successfully. Afterwards I used the DeterFox Demo page to compare the results of timing attacks on DeterFox and a normal Firefox browser. As stated in the paper the attacks agianst the DeterFox browser were unsuccessful, making it immune to the specified attacks.
