Information Security of Location Estimation and Navigation Applications INSURE

Despite of their growing penetration into security-critical applications, the potential sources of vulnerabilities, their mitigation techniques, information security, and privacy aspects of location-enabled services have been scarcely addressed.

INSURE-project aims at novel solutions for improving robustness of GNSS receivers against jamming and spoofing, user privacy and information security in non-GNSS localization techniques, and legislative policy recommendations for improving the privacy of the data in location-based services.

INSURE-project integrates transdisciplinary expertise areas of navigation and positioning technologies, sensor fusion, statistical analysis, communication and automation engineering, cryptography, and information law. The project is expected to complement Finland’s position as a front-runner in location-based ecosystems research.
