Wireless Airspace Defense

 

What is Wireless Airspace Defense? 

Wireless Airspace Defense is a next generation RF visibility threat detection and mitigation platform that focuses on securing layer 0, 1, and 2 before an IP is assigned. The explosive growth of connected devices presents a complex challenge for organizations. Most devices are vulnerable to wireless over-the-air attacks, and the landscape of threats is largely unmonitored with new frequencies and protocols being used.

Wireless Airspace Defense addresses these threats and vulnerabilities through multi-tier solutions.

All of the access points in your organization or system that an unauthorized user could exploit for access comprise your wireless attack surfaces.

EMI Threat Landscape

EMI (electromagnetic interference) pertains to the most fundamental layer of electromagnetic activity, encompassing any ‘intended’ or ‘unintended’ RF emissions. In a security framework, EMI is an expanding attack surface that presents risks such as data loss, disrupted transmissions, battery wear, and failures in critical systems. Every device that uses electricity emits electromagnetic emissions-radio waves and is susceptible to attack. Different types of device signal connectivity can pose distinct threats to system security.

 

GPS Threat Landscape

Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, integral to modern navigation and location-based services, is susceptible to various forms of hacking and attacks. These vulnerabilities exist across a range of satellite systems, including GPS L1 C/A, QZSS L1 C/A L1S, GLONASS L1OF, BeiDou B1I/B1C, and Galileo E1B/C, as well as Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) like WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, and GAGAN.

Spoofing
Broadcasting false GPS signals to deceive receivers about their actual location or time. Spoofing can lead to significant deviations in calculated locations and timings, posing risks to navigation and time-sensitive operations.

Meaconing
Capturing, delaying, and retransmitting GPS signals to create confusion or inaccuracies in the positioning system. Meaconing can create discrepancies in data that present hazards to operations dependent on precise timing.

Cellular Threat Landscape

Cellular networks like LTE (Long-Term Evolution) and 5G are essential for quick data and voice services. As foundations of modern communication technology, these networks offer remarkable connectivity and fast data transmission. However, without protection, these platforms remain susceptible to security threats including Stingray attacks, intercepted communications, and Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.

Wi-Fi Threat Landscape

As an integral piece of modern connectivity, Wi-Fi networks face many security risks threatening data confidentiality, network integrity, and availability. Individual and corporate users today must confront threats ranging from denial-of-service and de-authentication attacks to more sophisticated "evil twin" and rogue access point attacks. Bad actors can take advantage of readily available tools to exploit Wi-Fi networks and undermine overall system security.
