LAPWiN: Location-aided probing for protecting user privacy in Wi-Fi networks

Abstract

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… (More)
