GMCstream Flash News June 23, 2017 @ Richard Kusiolek. - Could ISIS attempt cyber take-downs of USA Airlines?After the Paris Air Show, a newspaper writer speculates that cyber hacking threats are a reality for Boeing and Airbus pilots. Large suppliers such as Honeywell International Inc. HON and Rockwell Collins Inc. COL —which provide cockpit equipment for many airliners—are skeptical about the need for such proposed capabilities. Some at the Paris Air Show have a vision that “advanced systems on aircraft as being able to identify attempted or successful cyber-intrusions, with the data feeding into artificial intelligence features powerful and adaptable enough to automatically respond to the hazard. But, that is not reassuring for the cabin filled with over 250 passengers on flights over Asia and the Middle East? Un-named US Government “experts also concluded that airline vulnerabilities extend to maintenance operations that can allow outsiders to gain unauthorized access to aircraft systems.

In September 2016, the Federal Aviation Administration’s top technical advisory group adopted language seeking to ensure that cybersecurity protections would be incorporated into all future industry standards—affecting everything from aircraft design to flight operations to maintenance practices. Carl Esposito, president of Honeywell’s Electronics Solutions Business unit, sees no need for such drills, pointing to the extraordinary rigor and care avionics suppliers use in writing code. Existing safety systems are effectively impenetrable from the outside, he said, because of “encryption, security keys and end-to-end verification” of users already embedded in the software. Flight-control applications are separated from cabin-entertainment data with a physical gap between their respective power grids. In the event a warning comes to the cockpit, he maintained, aviators aren’t cybersecurity experts so “what could the pilots do about it anyway?”

However, it is well known in intelligence circles that Militarized- Satellite systems from Rogue Nations have an advantage of embedded software in the cockpit and the cabin. Test are needed immediately to resolve this avenue of attacks upon our Aviation Industry. This time box-cutters will not be used by the next level of terrorist sophistication.
