Realization of RF Distance Bounding
One of the main obstacles for the wider deployment of radio (RF) distance bounding is the lack of platforms that implement these protocols. The authors address this problem and they build a prototype system that demonstrates that radio distance bounding protocols can be implemented to match the strict processing that these protocols require. The system implements a prover that is able to receive process and transmit signals in less than 1ns. The security guarantee that a distance bounding protocol built on top of this system therefore provides is that a malicious prover can, at most, pretend to be about 15cm closer to the verifier than it really is.
