Geo-encryption, Armstrong number, GPS co-ordinates, AES


The location based encryption or Geo-Encryption technique that uses GPS technology to enhance the data security. This concept is developed so that at a particular position and time, the specific recipient will decrypt the files. This technology will be used to restrict unauthorized user for any violation. The approach is to use a security system to secure data by using an encryption algorithm and particular coordinates of the recipient with tolerance distance. It will set a limit to decrypt that encrypted data. It is an innovative technique to encode the location information into the encrypted keys. If an unauthorized person attempts to decrypt the file at some other location, the security system will not reveal any information about that original plain text.
