RED DOT DRONE PTE. LTD. and GMO GlobalSign, Inc. have reached a basic agreement on the licensing of technology to enhance the security of “communication and control” for the development of drone technology.

[Background and outline of the basic agreement]

In recent years, the government and private sector have been working together to implement unmanned aircraft (drones) under the leadership of the government of Japan. Countermeasures against security risks such as the “hijacking” of aircraft and operating systems in drone operations, and the “falsification” and “eavesdropping” of communication data sent from the aircraft are becoming an issue.For this reason, SSL is gaining attention as a technology to enhance the security of data communication .On the other hand, GMO Internet Group’s main business is to provide Internet infrastructure services and support the development of many industries. And we have been focusing on the next-generation mobility industry, which is expected to grow in the future.In addition, GMO GlobalSign, a group company, is the only company in Japan that can meet both domestic and global standards for SSL server certificates and other PKI technology on a global scale.

In response, GMO Internet Group, through GMO GlobalSign, has reached a basic agreement with RDD to provide technology in the area of enhanced drone “communication and control” security.Specifically, GMO Internet Group will provide information on GMO GlobalSign’s security technologies for drone controllers, authentication of the aircraft and encryption of communications, and encryption of data transmission from the drone, and will also provide free digital certificates for RDD’s POC project as needed. On the other hand, RDD will provide information on user needs.
