Why is spoofing becoming more commonplace?
Today so many of our devices, machines and critical infrastructure rely on GPS/ GNSS positioning or time. Spoofing can have serious repercussions in terms of safety and costs, and that is why spoofing is actually illegal in most parts of the world. Yet unfortunately spoofing incidents are still on the rise.
Advanced attacks require advanced countermeasures
While simple spoofing devices are becoming trivial to set-up, more sophisticated spoofing techniques use advanced GNSS simulators and transmission techniques. These sophisticated attacks are more difficult to detect and counteract and therefore require more advanced countermeasures.
