Unchained Skies: A Deep Dive into Reverse Engineering and Exploitation of Drones
Moritz Schloegel, Nico Schiller

Our talk dives into the security of consumer drones from market leader DJI and exposes how to analyze, reverse engineer, and exploit such cyber-physical systems. In this process, we uncover various vulnerabilities in DJI drones, show how to bypass vendor signatures, become root, or even crash the drone mid-flight.
