"ECE's Global Positioning System research group contributes to the GPS World's January 2009 Cover story titled 'Assessing the Spoofing Threat'"
"The article's subject is spoofing of GPS receivers. Spoofing refers to a process of fooling a GPS receiver into accepting one or more false GPS signals that have been generated by a malicious device, the spoofer. The article centers on a new, advanced spoofer that we have developed and tested using real-time software radio technology. This device allows for a new type of sophisticated spoofing attack that is hard to detect. Our aim is to use this device in a sort of "war games" mode as a way of helping us and others to develop improved countermeasures against such attacks. The first two authors have already begun a collaboration with a receiver manufacturer that seeks to evaluate a proposed anti-spoofing system."
