Abstract : In this paper, we present the analysis of an Ultrasound-based tracking application. By analyzing several mobile applications along with the network communication and sample of the original audio signal, we were able to reverse engineer the ultrasonic communications and some other elements of the system. Based on those finding we show how arbitrary ultrasonic signal can be generated and how to perform jamming. Finally we analyze a real world deployment and discuss privacy implications.
