A moderately sophisticated enemy could extract the IP addresses from just one intercepted transmission of a legitimate command. The use of a radio control link would require much more sophisticated security measures.WEP encryption could be used to guard both the robot and command computer, just like I have at home. Add a time-signature to each command sent and encrypt, and you're pretty much secure. Sure-it can be hacked eventually, but not quickly. The more simple solution would be to produce a jamming or conflicting radio signal, which happens to me all the time. I have a 100% guaranteed method of jamming wireless modems, it's called a cordless phone. Pump up the power 10-100x and it's got a jamming radius of about 20 yards, I'll bet.But, again, that is why it's a robot. If it loses contact, it can retrace its steps until it gets back to safety, presumably with recorded information and mapping.
