Simulation Modeling of Malware for IoT: Implications for Aviation

This paper presents the results of a study of the malware, which will affect the Internet of Things (IoT) and its implications for aviation. First, the Delphi methodology is used in order to identify the type of malware which will be more prevalent in IoT devices. Second, several models are developed using system dynamics to study the propagation of malware, and recent cases are simulated (e.g., Sartori Botnet) to study the dynamics of propagation and potential schemes of protection. Third, a generic risk management framework is presented and discussed. Then, guidelines for the aviation industry are considered.

Unmanned Systems (UxS) Control Segment (UCS) Architecture: Architecture Technical Governance


This Technical Governance is part of the SAE UCS Architecture Library and is primarily concerned with the UCS Architecture Model (AS6518) starting at Revision A and its user extensions. Users of the Model may extend it in accordance with AS6513 to meet the needs of their UCS Products. UCS Products include software components, software configurations and systems that provide or consume UCS services. For further information, refer to AS6513 Revision A or later.

Technical Governance is part of the UCS Architecture Framework. This framework governs the UCS views expressed as Packages and Diagrams in the UCS Architecture Model.


Cybersecurity for Propulsion Systems

The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for aircraft engine and propeller control systems certification for Cybersecurity. This cybersecurity compliance requires that the Engine Control, Propeller Control, Monitoring and Auxiliary equipment, systems and networks be protected from intentional, unauthorized electronic interactions that may result in an adverse effect on the safety of the propulsion system or the airplane.

Potential Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Including Design FMEA, Supplemental FMEA-MSR, and Process FMEA

This FMEA standard describes potential failure mode and effects analysis in design (DFMEA), supplemental FMEA-MSR, and potential failure mode and effects analysis in manufacturing and assembly processes (PFMEA). It assists users in the identification and mitigation of risk by providing appropriate terms, requirements, rating charts, and worksheets. As a standard, this document contains requirements—”must”—and recommendations—”should”—to guide the user through the FMEA process. The FMEA process and documentation must comply with this standard as well as any corporate policy concerning this standard. Documented rationale and agreement with the customer are necessary for deviations in order to justify new work or changed methods during customer or third-party audit reviews.
