Regulus is the first company dealing with smart-sensor security. From GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System – GPS) to LiDAR and RADAR, smart-sensors are critical components across a wide range of applications, from mobility and automotive to mobile and critical infrastructure – real-world attacks against sensors are today a growing concern.
Regulus is focusing on GNSS (GPS) security and researches LiDAR and RADAR “signal-in-space” attacks (spoofing and jamming), a field that is very different from connected internet-based attacks.
Spoofing is a smart attack on the sensor’s receivers, allowing an attacker to pose as a legitimate signal, enabling him to manipulate and deceive the target, while jamming is a denial of service attack, causing the sensor to fail in providing any inputs and rendering it useless.
Regulus is developing a range of anti-spoofing technologies, from a fortified GNSS receiver to a software stack relevant for any GNSS receiver as a firmware update, and down to an IP core algorithm for the GNSS chip level.
GNSS is a rapidly growing $200B market, with cyber threats and real-world attacks already taking place. Today, little is done to secure GNSS receivers and chips, although GNSS outputs are critical across a wide range of applications, being the only source of absolute position, navigation, and time (PNT).
