module load signing
The signing module sets up and controls the signing of packet with a key. In Mavlink 2.0, this is a feature that allows a vehicle to only accept commands from packets signed with the correct key. This is useful as it lowers the risk of a 3rd party gaining control over the vehicle.
Setup and Removal¶
