Media: Pentagon experts warned of F-35 cyber vulnerability


"The Pentagon recognized the need to conduct a more thorough check of the cyber vulnerability of F-35," writes the resource. “Michael Gilmore, director of the US Department of Defense, expressed concern about the possible delay in developing aircraft combat software.”

Nevertheless, the military promised that "the most advanced software for the fighter will be ready in the 2017 year."

Previously, the media have already expressed doubts that the development of a new fighter will ever be completed.

“Ten years after the first flight of the F-35, its development has not yet been completed, although the 180 aircraft have already been built. None of them can fight, each will have to be modified when the final version is ready. This does not make much sense, because the F-35 has a number of flaws that will instantly destroy it in practice, ”wrote American Thinker magazine in mid-January.

And in early January, the plane hit the rating of the “most unsuccessful fighters”, compiled by the National Interest.

      Communication goes through an encrypted channel, but still through electromagnetic waves. And they can be intercepted. So the vulnerability is the place to be.

        What about encryption? He doesn’t just have a receiver that responds to any signal. Any signal can be hammered by interference, of course, but what does it have to do with cyber vulnerability then. It is rather from the area of ​​electronic warfare.

          .. in 2015, one of the mattress cybersecurity specialists, while on the plane from the tablet, "broke" the control system .. although now under a criminal case, but the essence remains true .. to get into the communication and control channel .. last year I don't remember who already announced that ours have learned to slip "false data" on the radio altimeter .. hi

            If from a tablet, then this is a shame. In theory, the very structure of the code for civilian and military equipment should be different, and the Americans seem to use general principles. Do not be surprised if they have equipment running under Windows ....

      Seriously, its predecessor F-22 has closed communication channels and cannot exchange data in a group, everything needs to be done through ... sorry, a dispatcher on the ground who decides, or rather, administers, without seeing the real situation. All this happens with a time delay, and in general it makes the F-22 an airplane of one flight task. With the F-35 they decided to get away from this, but the communication channels are intercepted and encryption has a limited durability in time. The computer on board the aircraft becomes obsolete in 5 years, computers on the ground are constantly being improved. So the interception and decoding of the signal — and instantly, is not an overly complicated task. Therefore, they are afraid to throw wunderwafers into combat zones, because even cave barmalei have skilled cyberjihad fighters.

        F-22 Raptor is controlled by two fault tolerant onboard computers,
        called CIP - Common Integrated Processor. In each of them - 66 modules,
        each module is based on the i32 960-bit RISC processor
        ))))))))))))) I960 processors are the predecessors of the Pentium.
        In the late 1990s, the release of Intel i960 was discontinued.
        Now it may turn out that your cell phone has more processing power than the F-22)))

      Wait, haven't you noticed 100500 of our fifth generation aircraft? Ours will be better, not only in the 17th, but by the year 27th. Then we laugh even more gloatingly at the Yankees. Just before that, we will solve the problem with the engine, that is, we will finally start our own production, eradicate corruption and find the means to order the series, otherwise we have decided to purchase 48 of the 12 claimed, and this is very small for the new series.

    "None of them can fight, each will have to be modified" ///

    The battle can be fought by any of them - the question is, what battle ... Fights of the 5th generation
    significantly different from the 4th battles. And the difference just hangs a lot on software.

    The F-35, in contrast to the F-22 Raptor, is the so-called "flexible software architecture".
    It can be infinitely improved and easily adapted to any
    present and future avionics and weapons systems. In F-22, this is impossible, therefore
    the project is at an impasse.
    But flexibility and weakness - more bugs, vulnerabilities, "memory" leaks.
    Those user countries that are good at software like England, Israel, and Norway
    will be able to improve their aircraft to their needs and their weapons.
    And who does not bang - will be very dependent on Lockheed.

How many of these programmers cooperate with the special services is unknown ... In addition, all modern technology is based on microcontrollers, which are produced thanks to the same globalization in different countries, respectively, there is a risk of "bookmarks" at this level.

      And here I recall
      A friend told me that for 6 years he has been living in the USA and is engaged in programming games in one large American company.

      We decided to remember the good old 90 and bought a game about the Second World War. I don’t remember what is called - but there was such a turn-based strategy. Played for the Russians, won, began to play for the Germans for fun. And what is surprising - with the overwhelming superiority of forces, there is necessarily at least one front on which the Soviet troops defeat, and then the end comes to all the forces of the Nazis. In general, no matter how hard they try, it does not seem possible to win the war for Germany!
      I argued with the Americans that the game has a condition that the Germans cannot win in principle. We got into the code, began to search ... I don’t know where exactly there, but found a place after which the Yankee colleagues could not understand my enthusiasm. Inside the code, the phrase was commented out:

      "And because, as long as at least one Russian is alive, we will not give up the Motherland to you!"
      Looks like our guys were among the developers.
