Att hacka drönare : De vanligaste tillvägagångssätten (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

As Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are getting more popular and their area of use is expanding rapidly, the security aspect becomes important to investigate. This thesis is a systematic literature review that examines which type of cyber attacks are most common among attacks directed at civilian use UAVs and what consequences they bring. All cyber attacks presented in the report are categorized using the STRIDE threat model, which risk they pose and what equipment is required for the adversary to follow through with the attack. The findings are that Spoofing and Denial of Service attacks are the most common cyber attack types against UAVs and that hijacking and crashing are the most common results of the attacks. No equipment that is difficult to access is required for either of the attack types in most cases, making the result an indicator that the security state for civilian use UAVs today needs improving.

Abstract [sv]

Obemannade luftburna farkoster (OLF) blir mer vanliga allteftersom deras användningsområde utökas, vilket innebär att cybersäkerhetsaspekten behöver studeras. Detta arbete är en systematisk litteraturstudie som undersöker vilka typer av cyberattacker riktade mot drönare som är vanligast och vilka risker de medför. Attackerna i rapporten är kategoriserade med hjälp av metoden STRIDE samt efter vilka mål attackerna haft och vilken utrustning som krävs. Resultatet är att Spoofing och Denial of Service-attacker är vanligast och att de medför att attackeraren kan kapa eller krascha drönaren. Ingen svåråtkomlig utrustning krävs för någon av dessa attacktyper vilket indikerar att säkerhetsläget för civila drönare behöver förbättras.
