Public awareness of national security has increased significantly since September 11, 2001. Literature has discussed ways to respond or prevent breaches of National security with some of these methods employing information technologies, including radio frequency identification (RFID) and global positioning system (GPS). Other studies have focused on the privacy impact the proposed solutions will have. This research examines the technologies under the umbrella of location-based services (LBS). The preliminary findings of this research indicate that the broader notion of LBS is what needs to be focused on in order to understand the impact that they are having in the effort to ensure national security.
