CyberSecurity in Space
FORRESTER RESEARCH OUTLINES THE CYBERSECURITY CHALLENGES OF THE FAST GROWING SPACE ECONOMY
With the rapidly increasing numbers of both commercial and governmental space missions, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly urgent concern for anyone with a vested interest in space enterprises. In this report from Forrester Research you will find expert assessments of the cybersecurity landscape of the current and future space economies along with targeted and actionable solutions to the unique risks posed.
TRUST ALONE IS NOT AN OPTION.
MAINTAINING SECURITY IN HYBRID, MULTI-PARTY LAUNCH ENVIRONMENTS:
Until recently, the traditional approach to operating spacecraft involved one single party operating the craft, its payload, and the ground network that supported it. This vertical integration allowed for the information security of the spacecraft to be built around the trust within an organization.
We are moving into an era where operators are considering using third-party ground stations, even separating out the roles of spacecraft and payload operators. In this hybrid, multi-party, environment, security can no longer be based on trust.
The integrity, confidentiality, and authority of commands and data must be implemented using controls that are near-impossible to circumvent, for both the ground station network and for the operators of the spacecraft upon which the payloads ride.
This is where OrbitSecure can help.
