  "description": "<p>Future satellite missions like Earth Observation,\u00a0Telecommunication or any other kind are likely to be exposed\u00a0to various threats aiming at exploiting vulnerabilities of the\u00a0involved systems and communications. Moreover, the growing\u00a0complexity of systems coupled with more ambitious types of\u00a0operational scenarios imply increased security vulnerabilities in\u00a0the future. In the paper we will describe an architecture and<br>\nsoftware elements to ensure high level of security on-board a\u00a0spacecraft. First the threats to the Security Partition Communication\u00a0Controller (SPCC) will be addressed including the\u00a0identification of specific\u00a0vulnerabilities to the SPCC. Furthermore,\u00a0appropriate security objectives and security requirements\u00a0are identified to be counter the identified threats. The security\u00a0evaluation of the SPCC will be done in accordance to the Common\u00a0Criteria (CC). The Software Elements for SPCC has been<br>\nimplemented on flight representative hardware which consists of\u00a0two major elements: the I/O board and the SPCC board. The\u00a0SPCC board provides the interfaces with ground while the I/O\u00a0board interfaces with typical spacecraft equipment busses. Both\u00a0boards are physically interconnected by a high speed spacewire\u00a0(SpW) link.</p>",
