Aviation is held up as a shining example of a safety-conscious industry – we are often reminded of how safe it is to travel by aircraft. However, as the industry moves towards heavier reliance on data links to improve efficiency whilst reducing cost and emissions, it is leaning on digital technologies which were not designed with security and privacy in mind. This talk will offer insights into the various security and privacy challenges of next generation air traffic surveillance technologies, shedding light on the practicability of different threats and main factors that impact the success of realistic attacks. Finally, we will describe the OpenSky platform ( which is a community-based receiver network collecting air traffic data. With over 4 trillion messages collected from more than 1000 sensors around the world, currently processing over 260K messages per second, the OpenSky Network exhibits the largest air traffic dataset of its kind. It is available to the research community for realistic and large-scale evaluation of various aspects of aviation systems and networks.
