I've written some scripts to semi-automatically list all machines of "ours" that running a web service, ~neilb/bin/share/listlikelywebservers - whichi is a list of all machines/profiles which either have a http or https hole in the firewall, or include the apache.h or apacheconf.h header files.

For all the "managed" machines in that list I then ssh in and run another script ~neilb/bin/share/listwebsites which gets apache to spit out a list of web sites it's actually configured to respond to. For interest that list is here ServicesUnitAllWebSites.

Armed with this list I've another couple of scripts (in ~neilb/work/dice/web/cookies/) that run 'wget' on the root of the web site:

  wget --quiet --keep-session-cookies --load-cookies cookies.txt --save-cookies cookies.txt--recursive --level 1 --no-check-certificate -O /dev/null

Which builds up a cookies file for the sites. As wget doesn't understand javascript, it doesn't see the cookies that would be set by the likes of Google Analytics. So another pass using wget, but instead of -O /dev/null the output was piped into grep to search for google-analytics.com/ga.js. Matches are listed below, along with the cookie results.

group cookies - for the record, in canny:/disk/canny1/cookie-search/ is a script 'do-search' which when run as root generates a file in the same location labeled cookie-search-<date> It follows the symlinks that group.inf does to the group areas as the groups web server. For each of those it searches for likely files (.html, .php, etc) and greps for "cookie|googleanalytics", and records any matches in the file mentioned previously.

Accessing Cookie File Search Results

I've knocked up a quick CGI that might be the sort of thing we point homepages users at so they can see where their "cookie" appears https://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/cgi/neilb/cosign/cookies2012

Not sure how we'd do something similar for the groups cookie results.


I'm sure I was asked to create a wiki page where we could give examples of solutions people could use for their web sites. I've started this at CookiesGuidance.
