Securing location-based mobile computing

26 Apr

Prof. Panos Papadimitratos from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden

External Presentation (External Speaker)

A broad range of Internet of Things and mobile applications are location-based: their operation relies on precise position information or they collect location-specific data. They have gained popularity, offering valuable services to users and systems. This brings forth a dual challenge: how to secure position information and how to safeguard the system from misbehaving data-collecting devices/users. In this talk, we discuss these two problems: securing Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning and securing participatory location-based services.
