ITU Blog: Enhanced VSAT security through Security Baselines
Over the past couple of years, there has been an increased attention paid to the security and trustworthiness of the products and services from the Satellite Communications (SATCOM) industry. This focus has been driven by customer needs, increased scrutiny from security researchers, and concerns raised by regulatory bodies.
In response to these concerns, the Global VSAT Forum (GVF) created a Cyber-Security Task Force in 2014 to bring together experts from across the industry to tackle the security challenge across the sector. The task force continues to drive enhanced security for Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) systems through a series of specifications that are being adopted by numerous organizations.
