Project Details ‚ÄúAuthenticated Positioning‚ÄĚ

This internal project researches possibilities to provide location information in an authenticated way. This means, for instance, a position information can be transmitted via e-mail and the receiver will be able to determine whether the provided information is trustworthy.

Aspects under research are methods to determine a subject's position, trust in position information, transport of authenticated position information, and applications.

Applications are entertainment systems (limiting broadcasts to certain areas) and protection of sensitive materials.
