Controller-Pilot Data Link Communication Security

With increased utilization of new types of cockpit communications, airplanes are at higher risk of hacking or interference than ever before. This paper discusses the applicability of the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) as a possible countermeasure to the identified security threats.
Networking 3.0 Whitepaper

With a modern networking architecture based on cryptographic identities, organizations now have a flexible and secure architecture where only provably cryptographically identifiable devices are connected.
