9.8 Million laptops will be stolen or lost in the next 2 years according to Tadayoshi Kohno. With that in mind a research project at the University of Washington has created the Adeona project named after the Roman goddess of safe returns. The lead Ph.D. students on the project are Gabriel Maganis and Thomas Ristenpart, working with UW faculty members Tadayoshi Kohno and Arvind Krishnamurthy.

Adeona has three main properties:

  • Private: Adeona uses state-of-the-art cryptographic mechanisms to ensure that the owner is the only party that can use the system to reveal the locations visited by a device.
  • Reliable: Adeona uses a community-based remote storage facility, ensuring retrievability of recent location updates.
  • Open source and free: Adeona's software is licensed under GPLv2. While your locations are secret, the tracking system's design is not.
