Talk-22: Applying Cybersecurity to Maritime Robotics Middleware: A Case Study with MOOS-IvP

Scott Sideleau, NUWC - Division Newport RI

There is a desire to realize cybersecurity in the domain of maritime robotics as it relates not only to the secure engineering of cybersafe unmanned systems from end-to-end, but also as it applies to the development of advanced autonomy architectures on forward deployed systems. This work explores a popular maritime autonomy architecture, MOOS-IvP, and its internal connection points with the intent of proposing and demonstrating more secure interprocess communications in an embedded computing environment.
