Civil Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) such as the Global Positioning System (GPS) broadcast unencrypted signals worldwide according to an open-access standard. The transparency and predictability of these signals render them easy to counterfeit, or spoof. Counterfeit GNSS signals can deceive a receiver into reporting spoofer-controlled position or time. Given integration of civil GNSS into critical national infrastructure and safety-of-life applications, a successful spoofing attack could have significant consequences. As a defense against spoofing attacks, military GNSS employs symmetric-key encryption, which is impractical for civil GNSS. In this dissertation, the author proposed a new navigation and timing security approach that avoids operating with a locally stored secret key while maintaining a high resistance to spoofing. The contributions are: (1) probabilistic framework for signal authentication, (2) asymmetric-key cryptographic signal authentication technique, and (3) noncryptographic spoofing detection technique. These techniques are viable spoofing defenses for civil users.
