Public release of DRIP code 0.1

This is an experimental implementation of specifications from the IETF Drone Secure ID (DRIP) Working Group by Linköping University, Sweden.

For installation, follow the README files from the archives. We did updates and testing in July 2022 to check it works. It is not plug and play, but requires significant effort to install (e.g. Google API key).

While we are glad to receive feedback, patches and error reports on the code (mailto gurtov at, but use it at own risk! We cannot promise any timely answer for the time being due to holidays and lack of personnel

Tested hardware: UA - Raspberry PI 4B + GPS hat + Juice battery, backend- VM Fedora 35, Android - Galaxy S10.

Good luck! Thanks OpenDroneID for the inspiration. As a return, we (mostly Elmedin Zildzic) offer them back a patch to support GPS data.

We also have a registry implementation using Iroha Hyperledger that provides "flight recorder" functionality in a blockchain. It is described in the paper below. IETF Slides
