CCL cyber security architecture – ExCO-NG


The project is a part of the common application “SESAR Deployment Programme implementation 2015 – Cluster 3” coordinated by the SESAR Deployment Manager.

Initial System Wide Information Management (iSWIM) supports the information exchange delivered through an internet protocol (IP) based network. The result is an increase in IP interconnectedness in ATM across Europe which means that there is a strong requirement for appropriate cyber security measures. The existing cyber security architecture (ExCO) cannot fully support the SWIM environment and therefore needs to be upgraded. This project addresses the cyber security component for the SWIM implementation and is a prerequisite for the implementation of the Aeronautical Information Exchange Service (PCP, Family 5.3.1) in CCL.
The ExCO-NG (External Connections Next Generation) project aims to implement a cyber-security architecture which would enable an acceptable level of security while supporting the iSWIM information exchange via an IP-based network by the SWIM-enabled ATM systems.

The project was completed on May 22, 2018.
