Title: Secure Localization: Review and Recent Results

Speaker: Prof. Srdjan Capkun (ETH Zurich)

Date: May 1st, (Tue) 5:00pm~6:30pm

Location: 우정관 (Woojung Building), 604 ICP lecture room, Korea University


Wireless networks have experienced unprecedented growth over the last decade. Our reliance on these and new types of wireless networks will only increase with the emergence of new application domains such as public safety, medical, transportation, and industrial and home automation systems. Increasingly, these networks and applications that are built on top of them rely on location and proximity measurements. In this talk we review vulnerabilities of deployed localization and proximity verification systems and solutions that are proposed to secure them. We discuss the security of GPS, WiFi positioning systems, Entry and Start Systems for Cars and in some more detail the design and implementation of distance bounding systems.


Srdjan Capkun is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science, ETH Zurich and Director of the Zurich Information Security and Privacy Center (ZISC). He was born in Split, Croatia. He received his Dipl.Ing. Degree in Electrical Engineering / Computer Science from the University of Split, Croatia (1998), and his Ph.D. degree in Communication Systems from EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology - Lausanne) (2004). Prior to joining ETH Zurich in 2006 he was a postdoctoral researcher in the Networked & Embedded Systems Laboratory (NESL), University of California Los Angeles and an Assistant Professor in the Informatics and Mathematical Modeling Department (IMM), Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
