Networked or cooperative applications of GNSS have become pervasive in low-cost devices such as smartphones, wearables, and geolocated Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and similar needs are rapidly growing in aerial and automotive settings. The potential vulnerability of PNT networked connectivity may be inherent in centralized large-network processing; in the use of heterogeneous and potentially untrustworthy sources of data for inference; and in the development of cyber-physical institutions for sensor certification, fraud prevention, and cooperative use of network resources. What new security challenges will arise in networked deployments of PNT technology for IoT, aerial, and vehicular applications? And what are the right coping strategies or methods to ensure cyber physical security?
