Title: Authenticated encryption
One more to worry about is the real security of satellite infrastructures.
In a technological civilization, satellites play a vital role in the management and transmission of information of all kinds. Satellites in fact do the work in silent that we enjoy every day, but we often forget this crucial aspect of communications.
Are these powerful systems of communication actually safe? Is it sufficient just to be in orbit thousands of miles above our heads in order to ward off the danger of an attack? In using satellites, are we sure that nobody could listen in on our communications?
Of course not! The main concern is the possibility of compromising satellite those communications in the context of warfare.
