Location-based services (LBSs) have been one of the novel uses and most popular activities in internet of things (IoT). In such location-based applications, mobile users enjoy plenty of conveniences at the cost of privacy. To protect user’s location privacy, many research solutions have been proposed. In this paper, we focus on an important class of solutions, short-range communication-based spatial cloaking algorithms, which achieve k-anonymity within some collaborative groups. We first… CONTINUE READING
