CCT-SSI-20170929 - Space's Industrial Control Systems Security

Ariane6 EAL4

CNES' Security Technical Competences Center is pleased to invite you to a new event

Space's Industrial Control Systems and Security

Firday 29 september 2017,  9h00 - 17h00 at  CLS, Ramonville, France

Satisfaction survey is available.

Presentations are being uploaded to a dedicated webpage. Access is restricted to COMET-SSI members in order to respect author's wishes.


Space sector has always been reliant on critical control systems for its ground systems, from the launch facilities to control command centers. However, once totally isolated and based on tailored solutions, control systems are evolving towards information technologies and components over the shelf (COTS) models. As a consequence, threat models and vulnerabilities are evolving too. Manufacturers and providers have to embed cyber security in the products development lifecycle, operators have to integrate security in the building and operation process. Thanks to regulation efforts, standardization initiatives and years of cyber security experience, new solutions have emerged to secure control systems and their surroundings. Cost and time driven development projects are also key into the adoption of new solutions.

Registration is now closed.



This one day event will be the occasion to investigate the advances made in control system security and solutions, with the following themes:

  • Regulations and standards evolutions,
  • Threat models,
  • Vulnerabilities,
  • Systems review and lessons learned (CNES Ariane 6 in Kourou,…),
  • Tailored security solutions (Intrusion Detection Systems, Secured Gateways),

The following presentations have been confirmed :

Day Introduction

Julien Airaud - CNES

Bridging the gap between ICS(IoT?) and corporate IT security


Stefan Lüders, PhD, graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and joined CERN in 2002. Since 2009, he is heading the CERN Computer Security Incident Response Team as CERN’s Computer Security Officer with the mandate to coordinate all aspects of CERN’s computer security --- office computing security, computer centre security, GRID computing security and control system security --- whilst taking into account CERN’s operational needs. Dr. Lüders has presented on computer security and control system cyber-security topics at many different occasions to international bodies, governments, and companies, and published several articles.
