Hacking, Jamming and Satellite Security
Hacking, jamming and satellite security is an increasing concern to Satellite operators and their clients. Our reports identify and explain both uplink and downlink risks posed by user level targeted attack through to multi user network attack and how these affect different satellites.
Our analysis explains the different levels of risk posed and what form they can take, from low level local attack through to unauthorised control of a satellite and the consequences of denial of service. We look at carrier wave, static noise (partial or full band) and replay attacks as well as the risk of unintentional disruption. We look at security based on modulation, encoding and encryption including threats to ground station security.
- Clear understanding of the types of attack that threaten security
- Understanding the levels of sophistication required for each type of attack
- Identifies potential attack to different stakeholders
- Identifies consequences and risk of full or partial denial of service
- Understanding of malicious attack on existing or future investments
- Security risk mitigation
- Disaster planning and risk management
- Identification of the potential effect to revenue earning capability
Satellite security breaches can take a number of different forms and the consequences of each are different to operators, their clients and the end users. We provide clarity and technical facts around this often misunderstood subject.
