NXLog helps Top 10 US airline achieve FAA and PCI DSS compliance

E-enabled aircraft designs have adopted several technological advances, such as internet protocol (TCP/IP) connectivity, to capitalize on speed and weight savings. A major benefit of advanced connectivity is the ability to move data to and from the aircraft without the use of physical storage media. The types of data transmitted can range from customer profile information, In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) content, navigational data, and aircraft health monitoring.

As with other advanced connectivity, a real threat exists. This threat may be intentional or unintentional, with the potential to cause reduced system performance or denial of service. To mitigate increasing risks, the FAA requires the application of an “Aircraft Network Security Program” (ANSP) through advisory circular AC 119-1 for continued airworthiness.

Furthermore, travel agents and E-enabled aircraft offering onboard card payments fall under the scope of PCI DSS regulations. Established log management processes are required to protect customer’s payment card data.
