Location authentication is a young security requirement that has recently arisen in ubiquitous computing applications. During the last decade, researchers have proposed several schemes to guarantee this property in different contexts, but more research is needed. To provide a clearer picture of this requirement, the authors present a comprehensive definition of location authentication, describe its main threats in different scenarios, and review the mechanisms proposed thus far to fulfil this requirement.
