How to Spoof Someone’s GPS Navigation to Send Them The Wrong Way

Researchers have for the first time demonstrated that it’s possible to spoof turn-by-turn GPS road navigation to send users to specific wrong locations. Although generalised spoofing attacks on GPS are well-understood – using false signals to confuse targets or send them off course in places such as the high seas – precisely controlling where they go in complex environments such as cities has until now been considered extremely difficult. For

Here’s What’s Needed for Self-Flying Taxis and Delivery Drones to Really Take Off

Amazon, Uber and other tech giants want to fill the skies with small autonomous aircraft ferrying packages and people from place to place. For that to happen, these robotic drones—also called unmanned aircraft systems (UASs)—need an air traffic control system to keep them from crashing into buildings, human-piloted aircraft or one another. NASA is developing a UAS Traffic Management (UTM) network with several other organizations that the group plans to

Grounded flights, lost drones and ‘crop circles’: the year in GNSS vulnerabilities

In 2019 we saw massive worldwide disruption from GNSS jamming, spoofing and other vulnerabilities. Here’s a recap of the year’s most significant events. If anyone still doubts the seriousness of the risks presented by GPS and GNSS vulnerabilities, the events of 2019 should put those doubts to rest. I’ve spent most of my career identifying threats to GNSS-dependent systems, and I can categorically say I’ve never seen issues on the

Understanding GPS Data Spoofing

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) spoofing is a cybersecurity attack that provides fake position, navigation, and time (PNT) information. A GNSS spoofing attack is easy and inexpensive to create, and a hacker can take control of a GNSS receiver remotely and usually without detection. Also, it can influence critical functions, such as time-sync, speed control, steering, navigation, location, privacy, and more. Spoofing attacks can produce conflicting data and incorrect system

The Connection between James Bond 007 & Iran Capturing a British Oil Tanker – GPS Spoofing

GNSS and GPS spoofing is a common practice in modern warfare, we’ve seen wide and long-range spoofing engaged in multiple instances such as the December 2011 US Spy Drone Hijack, the June 2017 Black Sea spoofing incident, and the recent June 2019 spoofing on Israel’s airport.

This incident proves that both manned and unmanned platforms, inland, sea, and air, are all vulnerable to this type of attacks.

The Entire Global Financial System Depends on GPS, And it’s Shockingly Vulnerable to Attacks

There is an enormous, invisible clock that keeps ultra-precise time, can be checked from anywhere on earth, and is free for everyone to use. This technological gift to mankind was built by the US government. It is called the Global Positioning System (GPS), it lives in space, and you use it every time you check the map on your phone. What you may not know is that you rely on

Towards Navigation Safety for Autonomous Cars

Article by InsideGNSS – https//insidegnss.com/towards-navigation-safety-for-autonomous-cars/ There are many good reasons for getting excited about highly automated vehicles, or HAVs, which is the acronym used by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). HAVs can make driving more fuel- and time-efficient. They can significantly reduce traffic congestion and emissions by driving a precise speed, minimizing lane changes, and maintaining an exact distance to neighboring cars. They can also increase accessibility and mobility

GNSS Spoofing and Aviation: An Evolving Relationship

Article by InsideGNSS –  https://insidegnss.com/gnss-spoofing-and-aviation-an-evolving-relationship/ One of the great engineering successes of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and its expert panels is the standardization of globally harmonized Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance (CNS) systems. These standards, sometimes supported by more detailed industry standards, provide safe and interoperable services between aircraft and the ground and space systems supporting them. A key safety ingredient of these standards is that they are completely open, such

Hackers Will Soon Be Trying to Send Your Driverless Car Off a Cliff

In late 2016, reports flooded in from Moscow about a strange disturbance near the Kremlin. When passing by the fortified complex at the cold heart of the Russian government, drivers found the GPS systems in their cars had been suddenly spoofed. In December, CNN confirmed that instead of showing the cars where they really were — cruising along the Moskva River — the GPS suddenly insisted the cars were 20

Spoof, Jam, Destroy: Why We Need A Backup For GPS

Earth got A warning shot on January 25, 2016. On that day, Air Force engineers were scheduled to kill off a GPS satellite named SVN-23—the oldest in the navigation constellation. SVN-23 should have just gone to rest in peace. But when engineers took it offline, its disappearance triggered, according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a software bug that left the timing of some of the remaining GPS

Ships Fooled in GPS Spoofing Attack Suggest Russian Cyberweapon

Reports of satellite navigation problems in the Black Sea suggest that Russia may be testing a new system for spoofing GPS, New Scientist has learned. This could be the first hint of a new form of electronic warfare available to everyone from rogue nation states to petty criminals. On 22 June, the US Maritime Administration filed a seemingly bland incident report. The master of a ship off the Russian port

Defending Against Spoofing And Jamming GPS

At the recent Air Transport IT Summit in Budapest, SITA Director of Cyber Security Vivien Eberhardt estimated that more than 60% of cyber attacks on aviation target critical assets. The most common targets were entire IT systems, airport websites, traffic control, and navigation systems and airline websites. Navigation and traffic control systems were subject to 12% of attacks, Eberhardt reported. In this category, there are few more critical assets than

GPS Spoofing: The Auto Cybersecurity Threat Hiding in Plain Sight

Cybersecurity has become a hot topic for automobiles, but one major threat has been flying under the radar: GPS spoofing. Last summer nearly two dozen ships were hit by these targeted attacks, which attempt to trick a global positioning system into believing it is miles away from its actual location. In this instance, the ships’ global positioning systems were led to believethat they were near Gelendzhik Airport. But in reality the

Cyber Threats Prompt Return of Radio for Ship Navigation

LONDON (Reuters) – The risk of cyber attacks targeting ships’ satellite navigation is pushing nations to delve back through history and develop backup systems with roots in World War Two radio technology. Ships use GPS (Global Positioning System) and other similar devices that rely on sending and receiving satellite signals, which many experts say are vulnerable to jamming by hackers. About 90 percent of world trade is transported by sea

GPS Jamming: Major Threat To Drones

As drones multiply, as they are expected to do, incidents of GPS (or GNSS) jamming and spoofing are expected to rise in concert during the next decade. That poses not just a threat of loss of the vehicles, but also to nearby aircraft and unaware people on the ground, according to Jeremy Bennington of Spirent, a company that specializes in jamming and spoofing defense. Bennington spoke at the AUVSI XPONENTIAL
