GPS: At the Intersection of Navigation and Cyber Security

Global Positioning Systems (GPS), the backbone of worldwide Position, Timing, and Navigation systems, is easily interfered with and active spoofing attacks have been demonstrated. This policy level talk, hosted by the Commons Lab of the Science and Technology Innovation Program, examines the cyber-security risks and their potential impact on the transportation, financial, and energy sectors.

Position, Timing, and Navigation (PNT) is a critical but often overlooked component of national infrastructure affecting transportation, financial, energy, and other sectors. Global Positioning Systems (GPS), the backbone of worldwide PNT systems, is easily interfered with and active spoofing attacks have been demonstrated. This policy level talk, hosted by the Commons Lab of the Science and Technology Innovation Program, examines how and why various sectors are at risk due to GPS disruptions and cyber manipulations. Possible short term and long term mitigation also is described with an emphasis on backup systems and location authentication methods.

Speaker:

Logan Scott has nearly 35 years of military and civil GPS systems engineering experience. He has been an active advocate for improved civil GPS security through test based GPS receiver certification, crowd-sourced jammer detection and location (J911), and, by adding robust signal authentication features to civil GPS signals. Logan holds 36 US patents and is a Fellow of the Institute of Navigation

Digital Futures Project

Less and less of life, war and business takes place offline. More and more, policy is transacted in a space poorly understood by traditional legal and political authorities. The Digital Futures Project is a map to constraints and opportunities generated by the innovations around the corner - a resource for policymakers navigating a world they didn’t build.  Read more
