Securing Satellite Systems – Cyber Security Developments

All of the key areas of satellite systems, including the management of the space and ground segments, TT&C functions, uplink and downlink transmissions, and network performance are vulnerable to attack if not carefully and methodically safeguarded. In the satellite domain, where vulnerability is shared among a variety of systems, operators must adopt strategic preemptive strategies to remain ahead of potentially destructive attacks. What are the most looming vulnerabilities in satellite network architecture today and what technologies should be implemented to mitigate those risks? What are the roles of the manufacturer, operator and integrator on any given architecture to provide security systems and support? What changes in the satellite operational environment pose significant risks going forward and how can those risks be lessened?
