Commercial transport aircraft have adopted TCP/IP based onboard networking technology to integrate information interchange. This change along with the addition of a TCP/IP based air-ground data link will permit the aircraft network to establish links with ground networks and be integrated into the airline enterprise network. There are many challenging considerations when connecting a remote network to an enterprise network. These challenges are multiplied when that remote network is constantly in motion, both physically and in terms of its link to the ground network. An important consideration in any enterprise network is the element of security. AEEC has published ARINC Report 811:Commercial Aircraft Information Security Concepts of Operation and Process Framework  as a guide for the airlines as they consider how to deal with this new challenge.
