The CCSDS Space Data Link Security Protocol

The Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) initiated work several years ago to develop a knowledge-base and relevant standards for the protection of the Telecommand and Telemetry communications and data systems of space missions of their Member Space Agencies. A particularly recent CCSDS security effort concerns the development and specification of a Space Data Link Security (SDLS) protocol that can provide security services to the existing CCSDS family of Space Data Link (SDL) protocols: TeleCommand (TC), TeleMetry (TM) and Advanced Orbiting Systems (AOS). Those CCSDS SDL protocols are used extensively for Telecommand as well as for both Housekeeping and Payload Telemetry space links by the entire civil space community.
