Abstract

STS is a novel approach to protect the location and the identification of a mobile user. This architecture simply divides the secret i.e., the location of a user, and uses totally un-trusted entities to distribute portions of this anonymous location information. STS avoids cryptography methods. As a lightweight scheme it can be applied to network of nodes illustrating low processing and computational power, such as nodes of an ad-hoc network, cloud and sensors.

Intellectual Merit

AUEB, departement of computer science.

Broader Impacts

Our solution will solve sharing secret problems by replacing a typical TTP with several non trustworthy entities.

Scale of Use

A few VM's for the experiment
