UPDATE 5: Note from Winn with Link to Pilot Brief on Avionics Insecurity
I am saying something very simple: I don’t know, and I don’t know anyone else who really does know, for absolutely sure, how secure the various networks and systems on airplanes are. I do know that when an IT person says they are secure because they use a firewall, I am skeptical. I am not a fan of security by obscurity, often favoring open source reporting by an independent security review on a periodic basis. I also know that physically isolated networks are sure a whole lot more secure than two network segments that are electronically isolated. Lastly, I know, for absolutely sure, I would be a boatload more comfortable really knowing that airplanes, of all things, maintain the highest level of security possible.
