DJI has passed the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP), a key security benchmark jointly established by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Canadian Center for Cyber Security.
The drone and robotics company says its DJI Core Crypto Engine has passed CMVP and is Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 validated by the US and Canadian governments. The globally recognized standard ensures that validated hardware meets specific security requirements, he explains DJI.
From this point on, DJI will ensure that all DJI drones powered by the DJI Core Crypto Engine, whether flown for leisure or operated for business, are trusted, authoritative, and globally recognized by customers. It states that it guarantees that it will be treated according to the established security standards. According to the company, this is especially important for corporate and government customers who require specifications.

Neither method is clear on the company’s data security webpage, but the header graphic seems to point to a more business-focused use case. That said, given the company’s words, DJI will likely add a Core Crypto Engine to all drones going forward.
DJI has put together a web page explaining its commitment to protecting customer data. It states that it does not sell user data to advertisers.
“We think it is important for all DJI users to know that we are not selling user data to advertisers. It’s not our job, we just want you to enjoy your flying experience and take great photos and videos,” the company said.
It remains to be seen whether this verification will change the view of DJI by the US government. The company was added to the Department of Commerce Entity List in 2020. This list is colloquially called the “financial blacklist”.
