Localization Threats in Next-Generation Wireless Networks. (arXiv:2106.04468v1 [cs.CR])

The impact of localization systems in our daily lives is increasing. As
next-generation networks will introduce hyperconnectivity with the emerging
applications, this impact will undoubtedly further increase, proliferating the
importance of the location information’s reliability. As society becomes more
dependent on this information in terms of the products and services, security
solutions will have to be enriched to provide countermeasures sufficiently
advanced to ever-evolving threats, forcing the joint design of communication
and localization systems. This paper envisions integrated communication and
localization systems by focusing on localization security. Also, conventional
and next-generation attacks on localization are discussed along with an
efficient attack detection method and test-bed-based demonstration,
highlighting the need for effective countermeasures.
