Geoencryption using Loran

Authors: D. Qiu, S. Lo, P. Enge, and D. Boneh

Geoencryption is the use of position navigation and time (PNT) information as means to enhance the security of a traditional cryptographic system. The information is used to generate an additional security key, a "geolock", that is necessary to access the encrypted data or application. The concept was originally proposed by Logan Scott and Dorothy Denning. This paper examines the benefits of using Loran for geoencryption and the implementation of geoencryption on Loran.
