GPS-Trackers

How they track you when your mobile is switched off

This talk gives a detailed overview on the state of the art of GPS tracking system (aka. location bugs), how they work and how to find and defeat them.

GPS based tracking of peoples, cars and things is quickly becoming a real threat to personal privacy. Trackers are now cheap and easy to build and deliver high position accuracy and real-time transmission if desired. Low-power electronics and modern battery technology combined result in tracking systems that can live for weeks and months hidden in your car, motorbike or even backpack, transmitting your moves and whereabouts unknown to you to unfriendly people.

The talk describes how GPS trackers work, how and where they are usually hidden, how you can find them (by physical search and other means) and what you can do against them. We will also briefly cover GPS chips in mobile phones and tracking by mobile phones in general.
