News Tech: Multiple flaws affecting the Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Real-Time Locating System have been found by security experts (RTLS). Exploiting these flaws could compromise the general safety of industrial workplaces, especially for employees.
Ultra-wideband (UWB) is a dedicated short-range, low-energy radio technology that is especially helpful for target sensor data collecting and precise locating, tracking, and geofencing.
At the Black Hat USA August 2022 conference, researchers from Nozomi Networks presented their comprehensive discoveries about several RTLS vulnerabilities.
Real-time locating systems (RTLS) employed in industries are currently heavily utilising this high-bandwidth technology to help employees identify various safe and unsafe working zones. Therefore, any flaws in this RTLS directly jeopardise the security of industrial work settings.
The tools used in this research have been made available on GitHub, and the researchers have provided the technical specifics in a white paper.
