DEF CON 29 Aerospace Village Videos


DEF CON Aerospace Village is a researcher led, non-profit whose mission is to build a diverse community focussed on the security of everything from airports, air traffic management, aircraft and space.

The Challenge: The aerospace ecosystem is a cornerstone of the global infrastructure and economy. While passenger safety is at an all-time high, the increasing adoption of connected technologies exposes aircraft, airports, satellites, and the interdependent aerospace ecosystem to new types of risks. The consequences of a cybersecurity failure in a ground, air, or space-based system can impact human life and public safety; a crisis of confidence in the trustworthiness of air travel and space operations can undermine economic and (inter)national security.

The Aerospace Village is a unique community that bridges the gap across security researchers, the aerospace industry, public sector, academia and all.

At Virtual DEF CON 29 this year the Aerospace Village is full of talks, virtual workshops and CTFs that will have something for you to get involved in irrespective of your experience level, or what bit of the aerospace world you are interested in.

In this article, we will focus on the space cybersecurity videos recorded at the DEF CON 29 Aerospace Village held on 6-7 August in Las Vegas. All sessions were online and hybrid.

Deep Space Networking 2021 Workshops

This training session includes three Wireshark analysis sessions of Green Data transmission (with data loss), simple Red Data transmission, and Red Data transmission/retransmission after data loss.
