CAAP 232A-1(0) - Administration of Aircraft & Related Ground Support Network Security Programs has been published.

Issue

The introduction of the B787 in Australia has initiated the requirement to provide guidance material in relation to airborne computer network security.

Guidance material is required to provide operators with new information, not present in the current regulations. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the USA has released policy statements N8900.D301 and 8900.1 CHG ANSP to provide guidance for their inspectors. The document provides an initial starting point for this information.

Some of the concepts with the B787 will introduce new technology (TCP/IP) which requires presentation of new information in order to assist operators with their introduction. It is necessary that operators have the skills, tools and procedures in place as specified in OEM documentation. Legacy aircraft used propriety technology which did not require a security program in place.

Project objective

The goal of this project is to develop CAAP 232A-1(0) to provide the following:

  • Guidance material for Airborne Computer Network Security.
  • Proposed relevant requirements for operators

Rules affected
