LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Regulus Cyber announced today that it is solving the GNSS spoofing attacks threat affecting the automotive, aviation, maritime, and mobile industries with a unique technology applicable both as a fortified GNSS Receiver, capable of detecting spoofing attacks, and at the chip level, allowing mobile phones, cars and IoT devices to receive GNSS spoofing protection for the first time. The company was able to miniaturize its technology into an industry leading form factor that provides customers more flexibility with integration.
As the race to develop autonomous vehicles increases so does the need for safety and security. Any vehicle guided by a GNSS system can be spoofed using open source software and a software defined radio (SDR) legally purchased from Amazon for under $300. A spoofer can generate and transmit fake GNSS signals that can be used by the vehicle's navigation system to calculate a false destination, directing the vehicle to an entirely different location, a potentially life-threatening hazard.
In addition, spoofing is a growing concern to any application or device that uses satellite positioning, navigation or time. While real attacks are expanding, anti-spoofing solutions remain a luxury that only high-end, defense markets can afford. The Regulus Pyramid GNSS brings a real revolution to the resilient GNSS eco-system, allowing GNSS spoofing detection and mitigation at the PCB level and later on at the chip level. While current solutions are big, heavy and expensive, Pyramid GNSS offers industry standard size and price. For the first time ever, vast industries such as automotive, aviation, maritime, and mobile phones can defend themselves against this sophisticated emerging threat, at an affordable price and relevant size, power consumption and weight.
Regulus Pyramid GNSS Receiver is a fully functional GNSS receiver, fortified with the spoofing detection capability. The receiver contains patented technology that enables it to differentiate between real GNSS signals and fake ones generated by an attacker. The Pyramid GNSS receiver is a direct replacement to any automotive GNSS receiver. The upcoming chip level technology is due to revolutionize the GNSS market by offering, not only spoofing detection but also spoofing mitigation to any GNSS-based device, including mobile phones.
"We designed our product to be a fraction of the size that is currently available on the market so that all types of companies – whether it is a car manufacturer or telecom provider relying on GNSS – can integrate it seamlessly," says Yonatan Zur, CEO of Regulus Cyber. "GNSS spoofing will need to be a major security focus during 2019 since it leaves so many industries vulnerable to attacks."
