Ensuring Drone Privacy & Cyber Protection utilising the IoTSI Framework
The introduced framework actively inserts drones in the IoT architecture by properly securingThe introduced framework actively inserts drones in the IoT architecture by properly securingthem both at device and network level.At device level, the proposed framework enhances drones with embedded lightweight security,privacy, and safety based on cutting-edge vision-based techniques, which also enable advanced scene/path identification. At network level, drones become part of the IoT architecture and they are accessed/controlled through it.
Furthermore, agile communications among drones are enabled, providingself-organizing capabilities that set the basis for innovative features, namely, device registration,flight dynamic monitoring, trust establishment through a distributive reputation point system,enforcement and verification of flight-plan regulations, and extensive fleet management via advanced interoperability.
For achieving the aforementioned security and privacy goals, the proposed framework introduces:(a) a lightweight security toolbox, (b) vision-based solutions, and (c) privacy prevention and anonymity techniques for mobile things
