DJI offers bug bounty to techies who can find software flaws in its drones

Drone security All-conquering drone manufacturer DJI is offering cash rewards to techies who can find security flaws in its software. The bug bounty program promises cash rewards of between $100 and $30,000 for anyone who can uncover privacy threats, safety issues, app crashes and any other vulnerabilities. The move comes about a month after reports emerged that the US Army was abandoning use of drone tech developed by DJI a Chinese-owned firm over cybersecurity fears.

A US Army memo obtained by UAS News said that due to increased awareness of cyber vulnerabilities associated with DJI products, it is directed that the US Army halt use of all DJI products. Many other tech companies have previously offered bounties for the same reason, with Apple offering up to $200,000 for hackers and researchers who identify security flaws in its products last year. Partnerships With an eye on winning back the favour of the US Army and securing government contracts, DJI is also forging partnerships with security researchers and has introduced a new internal approval process designed to uncover security problems before software is released to market. Founded in 2006, DJI has gained near total dominance of the drone market at all price points (apart from sub $500), partly thanks to aggressive price cutting. When DJI dropped its prices by up to 70% in less than a year it drove its nearest rival, 3D Robotics, out of business. The company, which is best known for its Phantom drones and the more recent Mavic Pro, also has has 1,500 people working on research and development, according to Colin Snow, founder of Skylogic Research, a drone research firm. Nobody else has that. DJI also benefited hugely from its partnerships with Sony for camera components and Apple, to get its products on the shelves of Apple stores. Global drone sales by units grew by 60% last year to 2.2 million, while revenues rose 36% to $4.5 billion, according to research firm Gartner.

The security drones report 2017

The prevalence, growth prospects, applications and regulatory challenges of drones and anti-drone tech in the global security market. PriceWaterhouseCoopers has forecast that the global security drones market will be worth $10.5bn ( 8bn) by 2020, surpassed only by infrastructure, agriculture and transport. Drone-service providers Aviat Drones commissioned this report to gauge how widely both drone and anti-drone technology is already used in the security industry and the level of demand among those yet to deploy it.

The security drones report 2017 also sets out to ascertain levels of demand for various applications from aerial surveillance to licence plate identification and thermal imaging. We explore the potentially transformative effect of what remains a relatively novel technology in this industry. However, this very novelty also means best practices and regulatory frameworks are still works in progress. Therefore the report examines the state of play in terms of UK and international regulations as well as technological challenges around battery life and inclement weather and how they might be surmounted. The survey was completed by hundreds of security professionals, facility managers and senior executives from around the world (although the UK accounted for the largest portion).
