Location information of users can now be collected from most wireless communication using advanced wireless location tracking techniques. Providing location information can be advantageous in some situations. However, there are instances, where it may be critical to protect the location of the individual. Several protection strategies, such as periodically updating interface identifiers, have been proposed so that an adversary cannot track mobiles in long-term movements. In this paper, we introduce a new strategy, DMAS (Dynamical Mac Assignment with Shuffle), in which the mobile client dynamically exchanges its assigned Mac addresses with others.We present a security analysis to show this scheme can greatly secure a client's location privacy.
