Secure Remote Access to Telemetry: A Study in How to Allow Remote Access to Satellite Telemetry DataMcClinton, Arthur T., Jr.; Noblis, Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2009-10)The need to allow remote access to telemetry data from closed networks has long existed. To ensure the correct engineers are available for anomaly resolution, NOAA developed the Secure Remote Access Server (SRAS) to allow transfer of satellite telemetry to an external secure server. SRAS uses one-way links to protect the ground system and secure communications for all communications with the user. After the SRAS was developed, a similar system was developed to support file transfers. This paper provides an overview of these systems and lessons learned in the development of one-way fiber systems.
