Fake Antenna Detection Project
Cell towers analyzed
Cell towers with irregularities
We are a project involved in detecting and understanding cell phone surveillance in risk contexts within Latin America.
Cellular sensors are built from off-the-shelf parts and installed into volunteers’ vehicles.
Sensors data is continuously uploaded from vehicles and aggregated into a city-wide view.
Algorithms find anomalies in the cellular network that indicate IMSI-catchers.
In collaboration with
System designed by security researchers at the University of Washington to measure IMSI-catchers use across a city.
FADe project is an initiative of South Lighthouse with the support of the Open Technology Fund.
