Aviation Cyber Security

Abstract

The next-generation air traffic system will be composed of established as well as new technologies to safely, securely, and efficiently manage a heterogeneous mix of air traffic. Recently the cyber security of this system came under intense public scrutiny. This presentation seeks to provide a framework to clarify and understand this emerging aviation security threat surface. Security and privacy considerations for the Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B)-- a key enabling technology in the air traffic system--will be highlighted. The system risks resulting from threats to ADS-B integrity, availability, and confidentiality and some novel solutions to mitigate these risks will be presented. Challenges and opportunities in securing the next-generation air traffic system will be discussed.
