A New Approach for Information Security in an Embedded Executable Build
Information Security has become a major concern in recent years. Hackers are using new techniques to gain access to sensitive data, disable application and perform other malicious activities. The need to secure an application is important for todayâs world. This paper discusses the ways of ensuring security in a software build that goes onboard the flight control system on an aircraft. The control system is designed and the code is complied and executed on the actual hardware. The compiled code is certified. Various attacks and cyber terrorism has lead to a possibility that an outsider can intentionally load a malicious code on the processor card and harm the aircraft and passengers. Therefore various cryptographic algorithms have been proposed to ensure security. This paper discusses two such algorithms that provides cryptographic primitives such as integrity, confidentiality and authentication.
