Abstract
In recent times, security has grown to a topic of major importance for the space missions. Many space agencies have been engaged in research on the selection of proper algorithms for ensuring Telecommand security according to the space communication environment, especially in regard to the privacy and authentication. Since space missions with high security levels need to ensure both privacy and authentication, Authenticated Encryption with Associated Data schemes (AEAD) be integrated into normal Telecommand protocols. This paper provides an overview of the Galois Counter Mode (GCM) of operation, which is one of the available two-pass AEAD schemes, and some preliminary considerations and analyses about its possible application to Telecommand frames specified by CCSDS.
