'''ABSTRACT:'''
 
Bluetooth beacons in public areas broadcast unique addresses that are picked up by mobile devices in the vicinity. The beacon may also transmit additional information like URL-code for advertisements, temperature on the site, and other relevant information. Beacon signals are increasingly being used for local services. The strength of the beacon signal indicates the exact distance between the mobile station and the beacon, which can be used for tracking and for triggering services. The industry is rapidly developing new business models around the beacon technology, but does not seem to  consider implications for security and privacy. This talk discusses challenges for security in general, and for privacy in particular, with regard to the beacon technology.

  • TITLE:  Privacy for mobile apps: Technical, regulatory and human challenges
    SPEAKER:  Nurul Momen  (Karlstad University)
    ABSTRACT: What is the most intimate device that you possess? If the answer is your mobile phone, you'd probably be interested in finding out how apps behave. In one end, we have a powerful device capable of collecting, monitoring, processing, transmitting data and in other end, this device is connected to hundreds of services through apps. Undeniably, users are being subjected to privacy exploitation due to the obvious reason - surveillance capitalism. We intend to turn the table around by simply asking - how do the apps behave?
