DEFCON 20: tools for GPS hacking


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.

    1. 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 info@swift-nav.com 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.

      Thanks,
      Colin Beighley
