This talk covers eavesdropping attacks targeting satellite broadband networks commonly used in maritime, industrial, and aviation contexts. We discuss a series of real-world experiments intercepting radio signals from 18 satellites in geostationary orbit using inexpensive home-television hardware. The result of these experiments uncovered severe security and privacy vulnerabilities impacting a variety of applications ranging from superyachts to wind turbines. The talk also considers the underlying technical and business drivers of these issues and promising approaches for their remediation. While it touches on some technical aspects, no background in wireless communications, cryptography, or satellite networking is required to understand the presentation.
