ARCA SATLINK is the first commercial implementation of the Space Data Link Security protocol (SDLS) defined by the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS). It provides satellite operators with all the cryptography required to secure satellite communications such as encryption, and authentication but also more advanced functions of key management and monitoring.
CYSEC has leveraged its expertise in security and cryptography to develop ARCA SATLINK, a SW SDLS Cryptographic Library that includes the main security services and cryptographic operations needed to apply security to CCSDS TMTC frames. The ground version of this library was developed within the scope of a previous ESA GSTP project and is currently deployed and being tested by several space operators. The space component is at a less mature stage and needs to be space-validated before commercialization.
The flight opportunity on the OPS-SAT was a great opportunity for CYSEC to:
- Validate the space component of ARCA Satlink;
- Secure sensitive TMTC data;
- Gain better commercial maturity with a successful in-orbit demonstration.
The OPS-SAT In-Orbit Demonstration has been a resounding success for the engineering team behind ARCA SATLINK.
