abstract: The wireless digital lifestyle comes to the expense of less privacy and security. This environment is prone to be monitored by rogue users, eager to learn from our lifestyle habits and use them for their own profit. The IP protocol provides very few mechanisms, in order to safeguard user privacy and impair efficient data-mining of user habits. This paper will address an identity architecture that makes use of both data (L2) and network (L3) layer identifiers in order to provide a pseudonimization function, based on virtual hoarding concepts. Our proposal is especially interesting when able to exploit the broadcast and promiscuous nature of wireless communications that usually is regarded as a security concern. A prototype implementation has been developed and tested.
