AIAA Panel: How Does Cybersecurity in Space Differ from on the Ground? (NO PRESS)

Traditional hacking skills are only half of the equation for a threat actor trying to take over a space-based asset. Once a spacecraft or ground station is penetrated, a sophisticated attacker needs to know how to cause harm to an on-orbit system. This discussion would look at several threat surfaces and how security professionals are working to secure them.

•             Data-link security – Space systems are controlled by a data link from the ground. How secure is that link?

                Speaker – Howie Weiss, Security WG Chair, CCSDS

•             S/C Control security – the cyber-physical nature of onboard spacecraft systems require that an attacker understand spacecraft dynamics and system interactions in order to gain control, how are onboard systems protected?

                Speaker – Aerospace Crop. Cyber lead, Jandria Alexander

Moderated by Dave LaVallee - Senior Project Lead, Space Sector, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
