  • AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL COULD BE SPOOFED ( ADS-B )

    Automated Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast or ADS-B

    The Federal Aviation Administration's next-generation air traffic control systems are vulnerable to hackers, who could send fake airplane signals to towers or track private planes carrying famous people.
    At the Black Hat conference currently going on in Las Vegas, security researcher Andrei Costin demonstrated a way to "spoof" an airplane's signal to an air traffic controller using about $1,000 worth of radio equipment.

    The vulnerability comes from the way the new air traffic control system, which is scheduled to be fully on-line by 2020, gets its signals.
    Air traffic controllers are good at tracking "rogue" signals from the ground and the current system uses radar to "ping" an airplane, whose transponder sends a signal back. Older radar systems are also hard to fool from a random ground-based transmitter.
    The new system, called Automated Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast or ADS-B, works a little differently. The planes will transmit their locations by radio instead of depending on towers to track them, as well as linking to the GPS network.

    Provided the "rogue" signal was captured by 3-4 receivers, it is easy to detect and to pin from where it was sent with a high precision. See, for example, http://www.multilateration.com/surve...ateration.html

    Just sent a police to the place and throw the criminal in a prison.
