Efficient Wi-Fi probing has been demonstrated to leak sensitive user information. During the probing process, Wi-Fi clients transmit the names of previously known Wi-Fi access points (APs) in plaintext. An eavesdropper can easily collect the information leaked by this Wi-Fi probing process to mount numerous attacks, such as fake AP or revealing hidden APs, or to breach users' privacy. Since APs are often named after the location, business, or affiliation of the host, an attacker can learn about… CONTINUE READING
