Hybrid Model for Location Privacy in Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks
In the today's fast growing world, use of internet is increasing popularly and at the same time Location-Based Services (LBS) are also getting more popular. LBS providers require user's current locations to answer their location-based queries. The primary objective of the present work is to develop a system which preserves the location privacy of the concerned individual. This objective is achieved by simulating locally cloak algorithm and globally cloak algorithm for Manhattan mobility model and Waypoint mobility model using NS-2.34 environment. In the experiments, to hide the user's current locations in rectangle [bounding box] according to users privacy need, obfuscation and k-anonymity strategies are used.
