Next generation telecommunication systems are converging into a sypergistic union of wired and wireless technologies, where integrated services are provided on? universal IP-based infrastructure. The concept of global reachability fuelled with the advanced mobility schemes and the "anytime, anywhere" paradigm caused that the requirements for security and privacy in the global Internet era differs a lot from the ones of a decade ago. We focus on a subset of this complex problem space and consider location privacy issues defined by the information leakage of IP addresses during the movement of users. In our previous work we proposed a special domain planning algorithm to optimize location privacy supporting potential of certain mobility management mechanisms by increasing the level of concealment of address changes in the network. In this paper we extensively evaluate the scheme by applying well-known location privacy metrics from the literature and using them as objective measures for our original algorithm and its variants first introduced here. The conducted series of simulations verified the efficiency of the scheme and also confirmed the performance enhancements commenced by our improvements and modifications to the original algorithm.
