Delivering technologies for a safer world
As the ATM domain increases its dependence on networks and IT technologies, protection of critical ATM and ATC infrastructures against malevolent acts in the cyberworld has become a crucial challenge. EUROCONTROL’s European ATM Computer Emergency Response Team is leading, alongside with national cybersecurity centres, the development and promotion of cyber security tools, procedures and know-how. Reinforcing the cyber-resilience of Europe’s ATM system will reduce the disruptive impact of cyber-attacks on operations in one of the World’s densest airspace. In particular, EUROCONTROL develops an AI based application using Federated Learning approach to:
- improve the capability to attribute a cyber-attack, and
- proactively get prepared for future cyber-attacks conducted by the same groups using the same techniques.
The benefits of deploying an AI federated learning approach will span beyond cyber-security as this approach can be applied to other fields of aviation where sharing of sensitive data is an obstacle to developing AI applications supporting operational improvements.
