Security Threat Scenarios of Drones and Anti-Drone Technology

Author(s): Yeon-Jun Choi

In the past, drones were only used in the military field, but in the age of the 4th Industrial Revolution, they are used in conjunction with a commercial purpose such as GPS and video transmission where they operate with the integration of terrestrial devices. In addition, they are actively utilized in a diverse range of industries through the fusion with many cutting-edge technologies such as Artificial Intelligence(AI) and IoT(Internet of Things). Also, with the increase in the output of the drones’ motor and battery and better performance coming from the miniaturization of them, they have provided a variety of benefits to society and at the same time, they are setting a new paradigm of living-style. However, with the increase in utilization of drones, which has made it more common-place than before to normal citizens, it has also lead to more attacks by dirty drones: we have come to the situation where we need to respond to the onslaught of drones in the field of security in order for the safety of society. As drones are becoming more advanced as time goes past, they are not limited to physical attacks, but instead, they carry out operations such as scouting and information theft. Therefore, this research suggests counter-measurements, utilizing the anti-drone technologies, for the security threat of drones through the analysis of security threat scenarios on illegal footage taking, spoofing and attacks through malicious code and physical attacks of drones.
