Effective coordination of sensor inputs requires correct timestamping of the sensor data for robotic vehicles. Though the existing trusted execution environment (TEE) can prevent direct changes to timestamp values from a clock or while stored in memory by an adversary, timestamp integrity can still be compromised by an interrupt between sensor and timestamp reads. We analytically and experimentally evaluate how timestamp integrity violations affect localization of robotic vehicles. The results indicate that the interrupt attack can cause significant errors in localization, which threatens vehicle safety, and need to be prevented with additional countermeasures.
