    Title

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

    Description

    The global network connectivity offered by the Internet introduces whole new families of cyber-security threats that can target space missions. To send commands to a spacecraft nowadays one would not need to build a ground station, but just penetrate from home or office the existing ground infrastructures, challenging and bypassing their protection measures. A whole new generation of countermeasures needs thus to be designed and enacted. These questions will be addressed in the session: - What are cyber-crime/cyber-activism interests wrt space activities? - How are aerospace organisations managing to introduce the right level of security measures to protect their development of new missions? - How is knowledge about security threats captured, shared among the constituency, and used to cope with the evolution of cyber threats? - Which ones of the new specific threats are to be expected to target space missions, from the ground and up into space? – How is the complex supply chain spanning international boundaries and continents going to affect the security of the platforms? - How can the new attractive technologies like blockchain, quantum-key distribution, quantum computing, Internet of Things (IoT), big data, social media, or cloud applications, be exploited without introducing new risks? Case studies are solicited to focus on cryptography, processes, operational security, supply chain, and other aspects of space missions that are all constituting the technical and organizational measures necessary to make a mission “cyber secure”.
