Location Privacy in Pervasive Computing
January-March 2003 (vol. 2 no. 1)
pp. 46-55
Alastair R. Beresford, University of Cambridge
Frank Stajano, University of Cambridge

The authors protect location privacy using mix zones--a new construction comparable to the mix nodes used for anonymous communications. They discuss two quantitative location privacy metrics they developed based on mix zones and demonstrate their use on a three-million-sample database of real location data from the Active Bat system.

Index Terms:
privacy, anonymity, pseudonymity, location, location-aware, Active Bat, mix network, mix zone
