Assignment

Establish Chain of Trust 

 

The amount of machines in a radar increases and the risk of a system getting hacked increases. For that reason, focus on cyber security is essential. One of the principals is a trusted computing platform.

  • Investigate what is needed to establish a chain of trust for computing equipment in Radar Systems.
  • Investigate if it is possible to establish a chain of trust when network booting (PXE booting) is used.
  • Design and implement a proof-of-concept for a Radar System.
  • Optionally: show how a Certificate Authority can use this Chain of Trust
