Considerations for the Incorporation of Cyber Security in the Development of Industry Standards
ARINC Standards are used to support the design and development of aircraft systems, avionics, networks and information security. As broadband connectivity to the aircraft is implemented, and as additional application functions are installed using common communication paths, the need for consistent security principles will be paramount. Security provisions need to be implemented in a consistent way.
The security process begins with a common overview of aircraft security and the proper security considerations provided by ARINC Report 811 with further details provided in the development of additional industry standards.
This Technical Application Bulletin provides cyber security considerations for use in an aircraft environment. It represents the security experience and best practices available at the time of its writing. This document will be updated as the need arises.
