Abstract

FAA Telecommunications Infrastructure-2 (FTI-2) Security Considerations
Developed by the N&T COI FTI-2 Working Group,  Networks and Telecommunications (N&T) Community of Interest
Date Released: May 18, 2017

The FAA obtains approximately 25,000 telecommunications services under the existing FAA Telecommunications Infrastructure (FTI) contract that expires September 2017. The FAA, in collaboration with industry, is planning for the subsequent program, known as "FTI-2", to provide all telecommunication services nationwide.

This White Paper was developed in consultation with FAA for the purposes of offering the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) considerations pertaining to emerging security best practices and technologies that can be leveraged for use on FTI-2.

The paper focuses its analysis and recommendations on the following areas: security governance, FTI-2 technology opportunities, enterprise opportunities, security considerations and implications.
