Abstract: Location-Based Service (LBS) is considered as one of the utmost encouraging as well as new ways of convergence technologies ensuing in the development of numerous fields together with database systems, mobile communication, internet technology and positioning systems. Even though being introduced in the mid 1990s, only contemporary LBS has achieved an efficient intense study owing to its commercial and scientific influence. As the LBS is associated to the user's location that can be preferred to track the actions of user, a strong privacy concern is elevated. To maintain the user's position, different intelligent works that are introduced with numerous challenges are still expecting solutions. To solve these issues, this paper proposes an encryption technique for improving the security of the LBS system named as Electronic Codebook Mode-Advanced Encryption Standard (ECBM-AES). The key purpose of this study is to offer security in addition to location privacy against the attackers. The cryptographic approach uses two veriers, and the claimed region could be in any intermission amongst the two veriers. The results show that the proposed technique provides better key generation ratio and network size, Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR), security and higher location privacy compared with the existing techniques.

Keywords: ECBM-AES; cryptography; LBS; security.
