ON THE SECURITY OF LOCATION DETERMINATION AND VERIFICATION METHODS FOR WIRELESS NETWORKS

Günther Lackner

Abstract

Location awareness in wireless networks could improve existing security systems. Access control or intrusion detection mechanisms would greatly benefit if reliable location information of connected devices was available. This article describes and classifies relevant location determination and location verification approaches. Further on, it validates their applicability, performance and security properties in the aspect of their possible integration into security relevant systems.
