Cybersecurity solutions: a must-have whatever the space segment
Leveraging domain expertise in satellite systems manufacturing, we understand operational constraints and we integrate cyber security across all system segments whatever the space program size.
Technological innovations and new comers entering the domain, like flexible digital platforms and software defined satellites (from GEO to LEO), mega constellations in low orbit and cloud based ground segment are bringing new vulnerabilities and threats.
This space revolution brings new services and applications will enable a larger panel of potential access points for hackers and new technical means for hacking like quantum computing.
We follow the evolution of the space sector very closely and we offer a cyber-solutions portfolio covering your needs, whatever the space application and the technology embedded.
Reaching mission continuity through protection of all space assets
Guarantee system resilience in the sky whatever the cyber vulnerability
Detect and respond to any threat from the ground to the galaxy
Comply with space security requirements, regulations and certifications
Thales has a complete offer from solutions to services covering all space missions: telecom, observation, exploration science and positioning, navigation and timing. Whatever the mission, whether for Satellite Control Centre, Mission Control Centre, ground segment, IT Infrastructure or End Users, we offer you the dedicated cyber portfolio.
Benefiting from a synergy of expertise between space and cyber specialists will ensure the highest level of protection for any space architecture at large scale.
Risks and threat evaluation
We offer a comprehensive set of capabilities aligned to space needs, delivered by world-class experts by providing knowledge & experience to:
• Identify your cyber security risks and priorities,
• Evaluate and improve your cyber security,
• Implement new capabilities securely,
• Design & Build security into your most complex & critical projects.
All the product and solutions to protect data and master the exchanges between networks and secure mobile communications. We provide sovereign and customizable products and solutions up to top-secret level:
Network Security: Encryptors as Mistral, diodes and gateways as Elips are ensuring protection of data in transit or at rest through the IT networks. We cover the several layers of security as well as sovereignty needs. In this way, we are developing in this cryptographic sovereign solutions according to country requirements.
Key Management Centre that covers all the steps of the key management processing chain and provides accreditation for the highest levels of security. It allows to mass generate, distribute, prepare and import cryptographic keys but also to distribute keys offline (via external storage devices) and online (via a secure telecommunication network). And finally, to manage keys via an easy-to-use platform in order to ensure their availability into the satellite.
Secure mobility: Cryptosmart, Cryptobox & Citadel ensuring secured communications within the User segment.
Secure OS: PikeOS proposed by Sysgo, is ensuring segregation, protection and detection on software-defined satellites.
Detect and respond
We master the Detect & Respond chain thanks to dedicated set of solutions from in-depth detection to high-speed analysis & response. We provide sovereign solutions and services:
Detect & Analyze vulnerabilities through a dedicated vulnerability management offer on board ensuring the best adaptation of the satellite to the latest vulnerabilities. This cyber security maintenance service help maintain the security of your system at its highest level during its entire life cycle.
Adapt detections strategy to the upcoming threats through the expertise of the Thales Cyber Threat Intelligence and its specialization in space threats monitoring.
Monitor your systems with a dedicated SOC benefiting from the help of our experts, with several models of deployment (build & operate, build & transfer, etc).
Ensure the supervision, security monitoring and detection of cyber threats within the system via Cybels Sensor, a network probe, and Cybels Analytics, an advanced big data platform that includes a business impact view in case of incident to help operational teams in the decision-making process.
Train and experiment
Benefit from Thales expertise in designing topologies, lessons, etc to train your teams, practice cyber-attacks in a digital-twin, and test your system on a hybrid-simulated environment. We provide a comprehensive offer based on a large experience that is already in place for the Galileo Program.
Thales offers a step-by-step road to space cybersecurity:
The Thales approach will allow increasing the resiliency of satellite systems while enabling the scalability and functional growth of the overall solution on the long-term.
From security by design, to risks evaluation, detection and response and network or data protection, we are able to cope with sovereign specific needs as well as military grade security requirements.
