The FOSTER ITS project proposes to build on the momentum of the TACOT success, maturing the proof of concept, reducing significantly its size (scale factor of 20), implementing new functions (e.g. Galileo OS Authentication) and considerably increasing its performance and robustness with new algorithms and new hardware to achieve an utmost level of security (e.g. a Secure Micro Controller, a MEMS resonator).
The primary objective of FOSTER ITS is to design and develop the first secured GNSS module available on the market for ITS application. The FOSTER ITS products will be Galileo, EGNOS, GPS and GLONASS enabled and will offer greater resilience against the increasing range of GNSS threats by:
- Detecting signal attack attempts (spoofing, meaconing and jamming)
- Providing indicators to users about confidence of the positioning
- Providing proof of the integrity and origin of the PVT data (digital signature).
