Russian military satellite received reliable protection from interception


The Avtomatika concern, which is part of the Rostec state corporation, has developed a new hardware-software complex for the Russian military satellite Meridian. The main purpose of the device is the protection of data transmitted to the spacecraft from the Earth via the Earth-to-space radio channel.


This was reported in the press service of the state corporation.

The device developed by Russian specialists is integrated into satellite equipment. It deals with encryption and decoding of data received on the spacecraft. The new equipment was installed not only at the Meridian, but also at ground-based points of reception, transmission and processing of information, as well as at the control station.

Oleg Evtushenko, Executive Director of Rostec State Corporation, said that the new software and hardware complex will reliably protect the satellite from data leakage and attempts to intercept control of the spacecraft. It lacks foreign-made components, which is insurance against specially created bookmarks and additional functions not specified in the documentation.

The Russian military satellite Meridian was launched into orbit on February 20 from the Plesetsk cosmodrome.

    Russian military satellite received reliable protection from interception

    Do not understand.
    Is this a planned development of the system or were the previous encryption systems compromised?

      Perhaps the keys and salt were compromised.

        The Executive Director of Rostec State Corporation Oleg Yevtushenko said that
        new hardware and software complex
        reliably protect the satellite from data leakage and attempts to intercept control of the spacecraft. It lacks foreign-made components, which is insurance against specially created bookmarks and additional functions not specified in the documentation.

        This is the main thing.

        First of all, foreign components with their bookmarks are compromised. You, apparently, missed the most important thing in the article.

      The message most likely voiced a complete and final transition to domestic electronics.

      Requirements for such systems grow with enviable constancy ... Therefore, over time, old systems cease to meet current requirements, therefore, periodically, it is necessary to update (or even re-create) these complexes.

    The great news is that the satellite has been successfully put into orbit, and recently, some inconvenience has often happened with this. Well, the fact that only our electronics is used generally causes a lot of positive emotions!

        A reference to the picture. But somehow it is not intelligently obtained.

          M-125 "Violet" (in the USSR it seemed to be operated from 1956 to 1965). More details can be found here:
          https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A4%D0%B8%D0%B0%D0%BB%D0%BA%D0%B0_%D0%9C-125
          https://www.cryptomuseum.com/crypto/fialka/m125/rus.htm

          PS And yet, yes, a reference (or name) to the pictures of such units is better to apply.

        Pancake! Cool picture. Do not insult ours! Then you confused the electrician with the electronics. It happens. This is an electromechanical technique.

    I thought that the gun was put on the satellite.

      Colleague, this is all from incorrectness in the title of the article itself.
      But in fact, it implied the possibility of interception of satellite control. (well, as was the case with some UAVs at the beginning of their journey).
      And in this case, the reliability of the software and hardware complex is very important. The thing is that RDO with a satellite (extremely difficult to intercept, but still ...) for years have been injecting supercomps with unthinkable (for me personally) speed. And there is a probability (scanty, but there is!) What can happen ... But we did it with RDO American SSBNs!
      So, in truth: THE CAREFUL GOD SAVES!

        It seems that there was an example when ours seized control of an American satellite.

          I don’t know about the satellite, but UAVs were planted under the guise of Iranians.

    Everything that is being created now, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow can be hacked. The process goes on without stopping.
    So the backup / not active option will never be superfluous.

        There you don’t need to take it away, twist it once, disrupt its orientation and hello, consider it space debris.
        Let's see who turns out to be smarter / smarter. Our cryptographer or someone cracker.

            Wow ... I remember when Mir was stuck in denial, we haven’t been let out of the facility for a month ... although we were not always talkative! Secrecy, however.

    I apologize that this may not be entirely the topic, but as I believe, space begins on earth, and here’s what’s happening on the earth, quite by accident, just ten minutes ago I came across such a post. Farewell to Jura, goodbye to Belka and Strelka
    Utility workers painted over our graffiti, which lasted 10 years, in the yards near the Warsaw metro. https://pikabu.ru/story/proshchay_yura_proshchay_belka_i_strelka_7277402 I think and think that V.O should pay attention to this and take action, because the nits erase our memory, I do not ask you to start fighting)) You are literate people and at least give the right advice to the guys, but I can’t come up with anything but to get together and fill the muzzle.

    The title of the article is just fire! I already thought that the satellite would be able to evade, or even shoot back,))) but domestic microelectronics is also very good.

    Yevtushenko, USA with the help of aerospace aircraft, such as TR-3B and its many modifications and drones, have mined all our military satellites for a long time. They calmly fly up, mine, and put the electronic warfare device on a military and non-military satellite. At any moment, all satellites can be destroyed and our army will be left without navigation and surveillance, etc. It is necessary to establish protection for satellites with a surveillance and destruction system. This should be the main thing. an aerospace drone flies up, tries to stick an explosive device, and the satellite begins to shoot it with large projectile cartridges, or also mine. he flew off, undermining. Want to make the same aerospace drones as your enemies? Contact, I will help.
