    Title

    Cyber-based security threats to space missions: establishing the legal, institutional and collaborative framework to counteract 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, bypassing their protection measures, from anywhere in the world. The questions to be addressed in the session will span across the following issues: - 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 plan and develop new missions? - What legal and protection framework is or has to be put in place to enable secure cooperation 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? Contribution are expected to focus on cyber-specific legislation, best practices, processes, collaboration methods between law enforcement and institutional partners, and any other aspects of the organization of space missions that are all constituting the formal components to keep a mission “cyber secure”.
