Hybrid Model for Location Privacy in Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks for Mobile Applications
A wireless ad-hoc network is a decentralized type of wireless network. The network is ad-hoc because it does not rely on a preexisting infrastructure, such as routers in wired networks or access points in managed (infrastructure) wireless networks. Now-a-day in fast growing world, use of internet is increasing popularly and at the same time Location-based service is also getting more popular even in ad-hoc network. Location-based service providers require user's current locations to answer their location-based queries. This paper is to develop a system which preserves the location privacy of the concerned individual by applying K- anonymization and obfuscation algorithms.
