However, along with these advances, critical PC based onboard systems, which control the ship’s radar, navigation and machinery, have become vulnerable to malicious cyber-attacks.
These attacks can cause irreparable damage or malfunctioning, and place the ship and its crew in danger
The potential attackers are Criminals,Terrorists ,Activists , Geopolitical and Competitors With cyber security considered a primary concern for the future of the maritime industry, and more than 60,000 vessels worldwide potentially at risk, there is an acute need for a cutting edge onboard cyber defense solution.
To demonstrate a ship’s vulnerability to cyber-attacks, Naval Dome’s engineering team, performed a series of cyber attacks on live navigation systems, engine and other machinery control systems.
The attacks were able to shift the vessel’s reported position, mislead the radar display, turn on and disable machinery, and override the fuel control, steering and ballast systems.
