Various presence-based validation technologies exist that provide for the ability add identity and presence validation to a laptop-based system. However, these technologies are primarily limited to computers (e.g., desktops and laptops) and do not include location validation. There is a need to extend these capabilities to other devices connected to a network and also to eliminate the need for a hardware-assisted solution. There is also a need to offer network location to avoid any type of attack from devices that are not connected to a local area network (LAN) or even to the same port. This proposal provides a technique to ensure that a device/person is present at a location by observing that the device/person performed an activity on-site, which can be observed by a trusted third-party.
