Space systems provide many critical functions to the military, federal agencies, and infrastructure networks. Space Policy Directive-5 Cybersecurity Principles for Space Systems describes the cyber threat to space systems and the need for these systems to be secure and resilient against cyber-attacks. Cyber defenses for space systems must be implemented in size, weight, and power (SWAP)-constrained, real-time operating environments that cannot tolerate increased latency and other common detrimental side-effects of cyber defenses.
In this webinar, WiCyS strategic partner Sandia National Laboratories will discuss these challenges. They have been researching moving target defenses (MTD) to protect space systems against cyber-attacks. MTDs create dynamic, uncertain environments on space systems and can be used to defeat cyber threats against these systems. Furthermore, MTDs do not require the detection of an adversary to mitigate the effects of an attack.
