Hacking Society

Bruce Schneier, Security Technologist, Researcher and Lecturer, Harvard Kennedy School A computer security mindset is essential to understanding the security of complex technological systems. As we move into a world where all social, economic and political systems are to some extent technological, we need to extend this way of thinking. Come learn how to hack—and then defend—society’s core systems: elections, the market economy, lawmaking, tax policy, journalism and more.

 Robinson and Mitchell - Knocking my neighbors kids cruddy drone offline

My neighbor’s kid is constantly flying his quadcopter outside my windows. I see the copter has a camera and I know the little sexed crazed monster has been snooping around the neighborhood. With all of the hype around geofencing and drones, this got me to wondering: Would it be possible to force a commercial quadcopter to land by sending a low-level pulse directly to it along with the frequencies used by GPS? Of course, radio signal jamming is illegal in the U.S and, frankly, it would disrupt my electronics, too. In this presentation, we’ll look at some of the research and issues we encountered, when we attempted to force-land two commercial drones (the new DJI Phantom 3 and the Parrot Bepop Drone) by sending GPS signals directly at the drones (while staying under the threshold for jamming and not disrupting anyone else).
