    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    Local service discovery exposes sensitive information about identity, location, and relationships. We present empirical evidence that suggests the release of this information in wireless environments poses a real danger to our privacy. We then discuss the challenges in the design of Tryst, an architecture that enhances the confidentiality of existing service discovery mechanisms.
