Should GNSS be a threat vector in your threat model?
Tue, 03 Apr 2018

GPS, also referred to as the broader term GNSS, is a fundamental technology for IoT positioning and time estimation. Developers typically regard GPS as a trusted input to the system because the difficulty of manipulating GPS signals is presumed to be too difficult for the casual attacker. Lab testing at Carve shows us that this isn't the case. There are easy software tools for manipulating GPS inputs to find software flaws. Time to rethink the threat model.
