Original Abstract

At the present time the widely used Wi-Fi networks provide comfort by zero configuration settings. However it leads to serious privacy issues. The article is focused on user information which can be extracted from service communication. The article presents several ways how to collect these information and introduces the platform for collecting user data. In the first part there is described the available network discovery mechanism followed by section about designed methods for obtaining user information. The last part describes the implemented platform in detail.
