  • ADS-B data validation


    Hello everyone, first time posting and I need your help with this.

    I was wondering about how flightradar24 servers validate incoming ADS-B data from volunteering receivers. Someone can simply inject false location and ADS-B traffic and have the servers portray that to users, or are there any authnetication/validation mechanisms in place?

    Thank you,

    IGPX

        Right. As you clearly didn't pickup by the shortened tone - which was a result of at least 2 different people report the multiple duplicate posts as suspicious spam/count building and needing to deal with them while busy. Here is the long version.

        Reconsider how silly it look asking the same thing, 5x. In different forums within 24hrs. Expecting a different answer from each.

        As outlined in the readme presented during the login process.

        - If wish to reach directly to the FR24 team please use this form or send an email to support@fr24.com
        - Our goal is to acknowledge feeders within 48 hours, questions from premium account users within 3 business days and other questions within 7 business days.
        - As we get a lots of emails we don't have possibility to answer to questions that are already answered on http://www.flightradar24.com/how-it-works and http://www.flightradar24.com/faq
        - In order to keep the forum clean from duplicate posts and questions that has been answered before, your post may be removed or moved without notice.
        That is a core service question that would be commercially sensitive to even speak of publicly. So wouldn't get an answer here even if the designers and developers and or FR24 staff frequented the forum regularly. But they certainly don't just to see 3 different posts of the same on a weekend.

        Likewise, noone would really gain anything by doing such a task. Stat points maybe? Whoopty. Especially in an environment where the data isn't used for navigation purposes. Even the possibility for the raw signal being tampered with hasn't raised much concern since proof of concept in 2012

        And given over lapping senders get the same data, one can work out themselves how easy it would be to spot those with noise and or false location information in MLAT.
