AbstractAs more satellite ground station systems use the Internet as a means of connectivity, the security of the ground stations and data transferred between stations becomes a growing concern. Possible solutions include software-level password authentication, link encryption, IP filtering, and several others. Many of these methods are being implemented in many different applications. SSH (Secure Shell) tunneling is one specific method that ensures a highly encrypted data link between computers on the Internet. It is used every day by individuals and organizations that want to ensure the security of the data they are transferring over the Internet. This paper describes the security requirements of a specific example of a ground station network, how SSH can be implemented into the existing system, software configuration, and operational testing of the revised ground network.
