Because security is becoming a major concern for aircraft manufacturers and satellite makers, vulnerability discovery and countermeasures should be integrated into onboard computing systems early during their development. Attacks against aerospace computer systems fall into two main classes. One aims to corrupt the computing system's core functions; the other targets fault-tolerance mechanisms (error detection and recovery).
