2022 DJI Alleged Drone ID Vulnerabilities

Background Subreption’s research and development team has been dedicating manpower and resources to investigating and developing an array of tools and platforms, including novel countermeasures against so-called CUAS (or “Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems”, a term applied with ambiguity to anything from drone detection systems to drone disabling platforms). Subreption has a long track record in R&D and vulnerability research, including multiple DARPA contracts and vulnerabilities found in widely used cryptographic libraries, software and devices.

Subreption awarded DARPA Cyber Fast Track funding for high assurance mobile computing R&D

September 2012. Subreption LLC has been awarded a second DARPA Cyber Fast Track contract (under solicitation DARPA-RA-11-52). Following successful completion of its first contract to develop a next-generation dynamic memory allocator protection set for Linux, FreeBSD and a hardened off-spawn of the jemalloc high performance user-land allocator, Subreption has now shifted focus towards deploying these and other protections in the Android operating system for mobile devices. As a full spectrum research and development effort, development began in early August under the codename “SAFEDROID”

Subreption awarded with DARPA Cyber Fast Track contract for next generation dynamic memory defenses

January 2012. Subreption LLC has been awarded with a DARPA Cyber Fast Track contract (under solicitation DARPA-RA-11-52) to research and develop the next generation of proactive defenses designed to deter exploitation of security vulnerabilities related to dynamic memory allocators, in operating system cores and applications. The DARPA Cyber Fast Track initiative has funded proposals from some of the most prestigious security firms and individuals in the industry, including Duo Security and Immunity Federal Services, among others.
