In addition, network vendor diversity leads to an explosion of vendor-specific management systems or single-u…Read more

    The rise of location-based services has enabled many opportunities for content service providers to optimize the content delivery based on user's location. Since sharing precise location remains a major privacy concern among the users, many location-based services rely on contextual location as opposed to acquiring user's exact physical location. In this paper, we present PACL, which can learn user's contextual location just by passively monitoring user's network traffic. PACL can discern a set …Read more
