    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. These questions will be addressed in the session: - What is the interest of cyber-crime and cyber-activism with respect to space activities? - How are aerospace organizations 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 among the constituency, and used to counteract the evolution of cyber threats? - Which ones of these specific threats are to be expected to target space missions, from the ground and up into space? - What is particularly to be expected from the cyber-space to target outer space? Case studies will 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”.
