Abstract

The paper demonstrates a mechanism for inferring the behavior of the user from encrypted wireless network activity. This mechanism also operates without any level of network access and without the need of breaking any encryptions. It also shows how an entirely passive, external observer can detect the information that is being transmitted over the network. The large number of applications that we install on our smartphones generates huge amount of network traffic patterns. The traffic that is generated by the user while using these applications also contains some characteristic traffic generated by various applications including their background activities or periodic updates or some specific information of particular applications. Although the encryption system present in various networks for transmitting the data prevents malicious intruders or eavesdropper from getting access to analyze the content of the data, the periodic traffic patterns generated by the applications leak side channel information such as data packet size, data transfer timing and the volume of the data. Since, wireless communications are broadcast in nature, various information that can be transmitted like data packet size, it’s volume, frame size and the modulation scheme used get exposed. This information can be used and exploited by an intruder to passively attack or steal confidential user information. Such kind of problem cannot be avoided even though we encrypt the frame headers and the payloads of the data. With the long range wireless communications becoming more prevalent and increased commercial interest in tracking and analyzing publicly broadcast wireless data, this paper highlights the threat to users private activities.
