Security Analysis of the Drone Communication Protocol: Fuzzing the MAVLink protocol

Domin Karel, Symeonidis Iraklis, Marin Eduard
Abstract:
The MAVLink protocol, used for bidirectional communication between a drone and a ground control station, will soon become a worldwide standard. The protocol has been the subject of research many times before. Through this paper, we introduce the method of fuzzing as a complementing technique to the other research, to find vulnerabilities that have not been found before by different techniques. The goal is to identify possible vulnerabilities in the protocol implementation in order to make it more secure.
