Proposal Title: AlertPrime: Tokenizing WEA
Topic Number: H-SB017.1-007
Phase: Phase II
Topic Title: Over-the-air Authentication Technology for Messaging via Emergency Alerts
Organization: NAND Technologies Inc
Address: 170 Shannon Woods Drive
Front Royal, VA 22630-9212  
Abstract: In an emergency or other special situation, government agencies can send messages to mobile phones in affected areas using Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA). The messages might convey life-saving information where it is needed, but vulnerabilities in the underlying mobile networks could allow bad actors to use WEA to send their own messages for harmful purposes. NAND Technologies will research and develop new methods to authenticate WEA messages and give mobile phone users the confidence that the emergency alerts they receive are legitimate, and to give U.S. Government agencies the ability to provide more information than the current system allows.
