Mobile devices like laptops, iPhones and PDAs are highly susceptible to theft in public places like airport terminal, library and cafe. Moreover, the exposure of sensitive data stored in the mobile device could be more damaging than the loss of device itself. In this work, the authors propose and implement a pervasive mobile device protection system, named EagleVision, based on sensing and wireless networking technologies. Comparing with existing solutions, EagleVision is unique in providing an integrated protection to both device and data.
