“A SURVEY OF ROS SECURITY” Conference Paper presented at IWW2019 Conference

Today, our laboratory research intern Sheme Hamitaj presented his survey paper of ROS security at IWW’2019: International Conference on Image Processing, Wavelet and Applications http://iww2019.kocaeli.edu.tr


ABSTRACT– Lately, the Robot Operating System (ROS) has gained more and more popularity among robotic software. Its community has been increasingly active and expanding further and farther. By using a straightforward distributed framework ROS becomes very convenient on the data exchange, but its communications could be easily interfered. Because robots have the ability to directly interact with the outer world, their security issues must be taken very seriously. This paper is a detailed research and an overview on security of ROS 1.x, its vulnerabilities and reliability issues. Additionally, we describe possible security solutions and recommend some of the best practices to get past this concern.
