Student project

Drones InSecurity

This project is about testing the security of casual/commercial drones. For this, we tested drones from the company Parrot, but the conclusions apply to all drones based on WiFi controllers. To test drones security, the project was divided in two parts. The first part is stream sniffing. This means capturing the video stream that a drone transmits to its connected user and afterwards reconstructing it, to see the actual video footage. The second part of the project is the hi- jacking of drones. This includes the complete capturing of a targeted drone, with access to all the controls and its video stream. After the capturing, the victim should fly autonomously, following our drone to a location we decide.
