Submission + - FAA denies vulnerabilities in new ATC system (ainonline.com)

bingbong writes: The FAA’s NextGen ATC modernization plan is at risk of serious security breaches, according to Brad Haines (aka RenderMan). Haines outlined his concerns during a presentation he gave at the recent DefCon 20 hacker conference in Las Vegas, explaining that ADS-B signals are unauthenticated and unencrypted, and “spoofing” or inserting a fake aircraft into the ADS-B system is easy.

The FAA isn't worried because the system has been certified and accredited.
