Unsecure drone systems may pose threats to our privacy, cyber security and our physical safety. Secure Systems Research Centre at Technology Innovation Institute (TII/SSRC) wants to be involved in making the current drone platform better, more secure and resilient for the safe use of hobbyists, commercial and governmental authorities. TII/SSRC will now be presenting how the PX4 Firmware is used to enable drone security research and what basic security improvements are being developed for encryption, memory protection and a more secure hardware. In addition, TII/SSRC will be presenting a security enabled hardware platform onto which the PX4 Autopilot software was ported and with those changes extreme levels of performance are achieved. The hardware platform is based on RISC-V application grade CPU cores, and it is capable of running multiple operating systems in parallel. Furthermore, the hardware platform integrates hardware accelerated cryptography on a single SoC. Porting the PX4 Autopilot on this new HW is done in order to enable new exploratory paths in drone software development for TII/SSRC's research partners.
