AbstractIt is an increasing requirement that commercial satellite telemetry data product be protected from unauthorized access during transmission to ground stations. While the technology (cryptography) to secure telemetry data product is well known, the software infrastructure to support such security is costly, and very customized. Further, many software packages have difficulty interoperating. The Common Data Security Architecture    (originally proposed by the Intel Corporation, and now adopted by the Open Group), is a set of common cryptographic  and public key infrastructure (PKI) application programming interfaces (APIs) which will facilitate better cryptographic interoperability as well as making cryptographic resources more readily available in telemetry post processing environments.
