Drone display and talk: Trends in Wireless Security and Authentication

Prof. Ivan Martinovic, and members of the Systems Security Lab, will talk about some of the unusual ways in which wireless security is becoming relevant to physical systems that we have come to rely upon; from tracking aircraft and snooping on electric cars, to detecting drone attacks. There will also be an opportunity to see some drones in action and discuss why they’re so effective at closing airports.

This talk is free and open all but booking is essential.

Bletchley Park Week:
This lecture is part of our annual Bletchley Park Week programme of events celebrating a partnership between Oxford and Bletchley Park. Join the conversation on social #codekellogg

Please note:
This event will be filmed and photographed. If you do not wish to appear in the photographs/footage, please make the photographer/videographer aware on the day.  If you have any questions, please email communications@kellogg.ox.ac.uk


Ivan Martinovic is a Professor at the Department of Computer Science, where he manages the Systems Security Lab, and a Fellow of Kellogg College. His research interests focus on the security of cyber-physical systems, networks and authentication. He was a founding member of the OpenSky Network: a participatory sensor network which aims at collecting real-world air transportation communication data. Before coming to Oxford he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Security Research Lab, UC Berkeley and at the Secure Computing and Networking Centre, UC Irvine.

Richard Baker is a final-year DPhil student in the Systems Security Lab. His work has focused on the exploitation of physical properties in cyber-physical systems, both for attackers and defenders. He has worked on verifying aircraft positions, detecting drones spying through windows and privacy in electric cars.
