Abstract : As the most serious cyber-attack threats rapidly shift from untargeted toward increasingly targeted methods, it is becoming correspondingly more crucial for organizations to protect the identity and location-privacy of their members against malicious tracking and surveillance. We propose to develop PriFi, an anti-tracking and location-private network access mechanism to protect members of an organization both while on-site (via privacy-protected WiFi networking) and while off-site (via privacy-protected Virtual Private Networking or VPN).
