    Title

    Cyber-security threats to space missions and countermeasures to address them

    Description

    The increasingly pervasive network connectivity following the Internet explosion introduces a whole new families of cyber-security threats to space missions. To send commands to a spacecraft now you would not need to build a ground station, but you can penetrate from your home or office the existing ground infrastructures, challenging and bypassing their protection measures. These questions will have to be addressed in the session: - What is the interest of cyber-crime and cyber-activism with respect to space activities? - How are aerospace organisations managing the ability to introduce the right level of security measures in the process to develop new missions? - What solutions are in place to work securely across corporate and international boundaries? - How is knowledge about security threats captured, shared, and used to follow the evolution of cyber threats? - Which ones of these specific threats are to be expected to target space missions, from the ground and from space? - What is particularly to be expected from the cyber-space to target outer space? Case studies and methodological approaches will focus upon: - Analysis of successful projects and innovative approaches in the application of security analysis and requirements to the development phase of space missions’ project management. - Focussed research in risk management specific to the space environment. - Capture of technical expertise and lessons learned from previous successful projects that are applicable to new programmes, with focus on driving information transfer. - Developments of methodologies and practices for Secure Software Engineering and impact thereof on prevalent standards. - Methods that allow data, information or knowledge exchange, specific to security-related aspects and cyber-security in particular, within or amongst organisations in support of actual programmes or missions. - Cryptography, processes, operational security, and other aspects of space missions that are all constituting the technical components to keep a mission “cyber secure”. - Challenges of cyber-security when bordering with the physical space - making sure that ground systems, command, telemetry, and the physical infrastructure of a space mission are kept secure as needed. - Challenges of securing the data and information - and their use according to the specific data policies- that are derived from the space missions - geo-spatial and/or mapping data, knowledge and information derived from processing of data.
