Moving target defense for avionic systems

Vahid Heydari

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper, we address the security of new aircraft avionic systems that utilize the Internet Protocol (IP). We discuss the security issues of these systems and describe our method to improve the security of the communication between the aircraft and the ground station. The secure communication plays a critical role in being able to move forward with the next-generation flight control systems to prevent tragic events such as the 9/11 attack. Our approach uses a novel Mobile IPv6 based Moving Target Defense strategy to prevent any potential cyber-attacks from their reconnaissance stage.
