Audit Initiated of FAA's Information Security Controls of the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast System
The Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) system is FAA's satellite-based surveillance technology that will complement radar by using aircraft avionics and ground-based systems to provide information on aircraft location to pilots and controllers. The FAA Modernization Reform Act of 2012 requires OIG to conduct an assessment of how security issues are addressed in ADS-B’s overall design and implementation. Our audit objective is to evaluate how security issues are being addressed in the overall design and implementation of the ADS-B system.
