Secure Satellite Communications in Network Centric Operations

S.A. Barbulescu, N.H. Ngo, and O.C. Barbulescu (Australia)


Satellite communications, network centric operations, turbo codes and secure links.


Satellite communications will always play a key role in network centric operations (NCO), in particular for countries like Australia, with large land mass and huge coast lines. We start from the concept advantages of NCO and we end with some practical approaches that increase the security of satellite links. We show how the physical layer in a communication system can significantly increase the uncertainty in detecting a “0” or a “1” for an attacker, before even reaching the conventional decryption stage.
