On this episode of the Connected Aircraft Podcast, Peter Skaves, chief scientist and technical advisor for advanced avionics for the Federal Aviation Administration gives some of the agency's latest guidance on how commercial airlines can protect connected systems onboard.
The episode features the presentation Skaves gave during the recent Global Connected Aircraft Summit's Cabin Chats 2020 program that took place Sept. 22-24. You can view all of the sessions from Cabin Chats on-demand for free here with email registration.
Skaves has been with the FAA for 29 years, publishing numerous white papers on issues such as aircraft systems information security protection, systems safety, and development assurance processes, software, electronic flight bag, communication systems, and Technical Standard Orders (TSO) for security consideration.
"We believe that the greatest threat is the exploitation of aircraft electronic access points via public networks such as the internet or counterfeit computer integrated circuits," Skaves said during the presentation.
