This thesis presents Privaros, a framework to enforce privacy policies on drones. Privaros is designed for commercial delivery drones, such as the ones that will likely be used by Amazon Prime Air. Such drones visit various host airspaces, each of which may have different privacy requirements. Privaros uses mandatory access control to enforce the policies of these hosts on guest delivery drones. Privaros is tailored for ROS, a middleware popular in many drone platforms. This thesis presents the design and implementation of Privaross policy-enforcement mechanisms, describes how policies are specified, and shows that policy specification can be integrated with Indias Digital Sky portal. This thesis presents an evaluation of Privaros that shows that a drone running Privaros can robustly enforce various privacy policies specified by hosts, and that its core mechanisms only marginally increase communication latency and power consumption.
