Unhackable drone research to go open source

Open Source 3

mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes "Researchers are set to release open source US Defence research designed to prevent unmanned drone aircraft from being hacked.

The DARPA research will take four years, cost $18 million and promises to also help secure critical systems such as aircraft, vehicles and medical devices and make their code more stable."

Open Source is not a cure all (1)

Taco Cowboy (5327) | about 2 years ago | (#41990105)

I am an OSS proponent but it needs reminding that OSS is not a cure-all.

For instance: Linux is open-sourced, but Linux is _still_ hackable.
