Security in a Fully Digital World

October 29, 2011

10/30/11 — The question concerning security in a fully digital world is one that society continues to wrestle with as hackers continue to penetrate critical infrastructure, such as the recent admission on the part of NASA’s Terra AM-1 satellite.

According to USA Today, “NASA experienced two suspicious events with the Terra spacecraft in the summer and fall of 2008,” Perrotto wrote. “We can confirm that there was no manipulation of data, no commands were successfully sent to the satellite, and no data was captured. NASA notified the Department of Defense, which is responsible for investigating any attempted interference with satellite operations.”

The question that each of us should ultimately ask ourselves is whether security is truly possible in a digital world where no matter what you do, there’s always going to be someone better than you are. What this essentially means is that no matter what precautions you build into the equation, there’s always going to be someone out there who will get through it. So, what’s the point? And so why is Uncle Sam placing critical infrastructure on the Internet?
