Cybersecurity of embedded computers systems

Abstract : Several articles have recently raised the issue of computer security of commercial flights by evoking the "connected aircraft, hackers target" or "Wi-Fi on planes, an open door for hackers ? " Or "Can you hack the computer of an Airbus or a Boeing ?". The feared scenario consists in a takeover of operational aircraft software that intentionally cause an accident. Moreover, several computer security experts have lately announced they had detected flaws in embedded systems, that exploited could lead to the aircraft's takeover by the "hacker". This multiplication of alarming publications occurs in a context of proliferation of sophisticated computer attacks, targeting commercial enterprises to steal their sensitive information. The world of aviation, if not offering the same exposure to the cyber threat as a public website, had however for some years its computer systems increasingly interconnected. Flight Management Computers "sealing" hitherto guaranteed by the autonomous nature of its trade (with the ground), now communicate with other systems. If this situation is not unique, it is natural that the growing number of interconnections leads observers to wonder about new vulnerabilities.
