DEFCON 20: tools for GPS hacking

in library, RF, Videos by the machinegeek | 3 comments

At DEFCON 20, Fergus Noble and Colin Beighley discussed the basics of GPS operation and how hackers can access and use its data. They have developed and released a new set of tools which they hope will make GPS accessible to hackers and experimenters. These resources include a library, libswiftnav, which contains a complete toolset for building a GPS receiver, and Piksi, a stand-alone hardware platform to run it on.

    I want to become a beta tester of PIKSI
    I am interested in systems of accurate time.
    I want to use the platform PIKSI bind to the exact time for navigation signals and evaluating the accuracy of the binding.

    • Hey Nick,

      I think you’ve already emailed us, but just a heads up to anyone else who is interested in what we’re doing – you can email us at and we’ll be happy to tell you all about it. We’ve got a mailing list going for announcements related to the development and initial release as well.

      Colin Beighley
