Implementation and Validation of a Localisation Assurance Service Provider
Existing Global Navigation Satellite Systems offer no authentication to the open service signals and so stand-alone receivers are vulnerable to meaconing and spoofing attacks. These attacks interfere with the integrity and authenticity of satellite signals: they can delay signals, or re-broadcast signals. Positioning is thus compromised and location-based services are at risk.This paper describes a solution to mitigate this risk. It is a trusted third-party Localisation Assurance service that informs location-based services providers up to which level a location claimed by client can be trusted. It runs several tests over the localisation data of client receivers and certifies the level of assurance of locations. An assurance level expresses the amount of trust the third-party has that a receiver's location is calculated from integral and authentic satellite signals.
