Certificate Fingerprints

There have been some very nasty certificate based vulnerabilities announced recently and these amount to an attacker being able to act as  MITM (Man In The Middle) on pretty much any SSL conversation.  All the attacker has to do is insert themselves somewhere in your traffic chain between you and your target web site.
As these vulnerabilities turn into real exploits, you should be really really really (got the picture?) careful what sites you log into and give your personal info to.

This essentially means that the UAV controls attitude and takes directional input from the radio. The UAV interprets the RC signal and decides on the relevant bank and pitch angles. In the case of the testing this weekend, it was noted that the maximum bank and pitch angles were not sufficient to have full control of the plane. Additionally some roll oscillation was noted although given that the gyro is presently disconnected, this is not unexpected.

UAV Build January 09 Update

It's been a long time since an update on the UAV project has been forthcoming, so I thought it worth a quick post with progress.The RC radio is now re-modified so that operation of the mode switch is on the left.  I fly mode 2 and it was not the smartest descision to put the mode switch over on the right of the radio.Test flights have shown that during the brief forays into AUTO1 (stabilised manual flight) showed a small roll oscillation and a violent nose down pitch.  this issue is ongoing and is the cause of much head scratching.  Telemetry data seems to show that the AHI is in a neutral
