The impact of localization systems in our daily lives is increasing. As next-generation networks will introduce hyperconnectivity with the emerging applications, this impact will undoubtedly further increase, proliferating the importance of the location information's reliability. As society becomes more dependent on this information in terms of the products and services, security solutions will have to be enriched to provide countermeasures sufficiently advanced to ever-evolving threats, forcing the joint design of communication and localization systems. This paper envisions integrated communication and localization systems by focusing on localization security. Also, conventional and next-generation attacks on localization are discussed along with an efficient attack detection method and test-bed-based demonstration, highlighting the need for effective countermeasures.
