This paper reviews the Internet-inspired security work on delay tolerant networking, in particular, as it might apply to space missions, and identifies some challenges arising, for both the Internet security community and for space missions. These challenges include the development of key management schemes suited for space missions as well as a characterization of the actual security requirements applying. A specific goal of this paper is therefore to elicit feedback from space mission IT specialists in order to guide the development of security mechanisms for delay tolerant networking.
