DO-326A / ED-202A Training: Aviation Cyber Security


In this introductory 2-Day training course on aviation cyber-security via DO-326A (ED-202A), attendees receive a crash-course on the new “DO-326A/ED-202A security ecosystem” of emerging aviation cyber security regulations.

The DO-326A/ED-202A set of documents is all about the mitigation of the aviation/aircraft safety effects of “Intentional Unauthorized Electronic Interaction (IUEI)”, a.k.a. “Cyber Threats”, and which were explicitly excluded from the classic DO-178C/ED-12C/ARP4754A set.

DO326A/ED202A & DO-356A/ED-203A focus upon type certification during the first three phases of an aircraft (including avionics) type: 1) Initiation, 2) Development or Acquisition, and 3) Implementation. Their companions DO-355/ED-204 focus upon security for continued airworthiness.

DO-326A/ED-202A currently has 3 (three) companion documents: ED-201, DO-355/ED-204 and DO-356A / ED-203A, and a few more planned. DO-326A / ED202A provide requirements and objectives in a similar fashion to DO-178C, DO-254, and ARP4754A; while the DO-326A guidance is just that, certification authorities increasingly assess DO-326A compliance as added requirements for aviation suppliers.  The DO-326A/ED-202A set currently applies to fixed-wing aircraft (Part 25), with clear FAA recommendations for the adaptation/tailoring of DO-326A/ED-202A for general aviation (Part 23),rotorcraft (Parts 27 and 29), engines (Part 33) and propellers (Part 35), and clear indications of it will increasingly being applied to these other aircraft including military beginning in 2022 or thereafter.

AFuzion’s training has been provided to over 23,000 aviation engineers from 1,000 companies in 30 countries; more than all other trainers in the world combined. Brief summary below; contact us at [email protected] for more free information.

KEY FEATURES of AFuzion’s DO-326A (ED-202A) Training Classes:

  • Top-level acquaintance with Information-Security/Cyber-Security in general
  • Cybersecurity aspects of Operational Technology (OT) / Industrial Control & Automation Systems (ICAS)
  • The uniqueness of “Aviation Cybersecurity”, Aircraft Systems Information Security Protection (ASISP)
  • Origins of Cybersecurity standards & regulation
  • The road to ED-202/DO-326A: “Security as a Safety Aspect”
  • The development process of the entire “ED-202/DO-326 set”, rationale behind the documents & relations with DO-178C/ED-12C, “feeding” Security into Safety through SAE ARP 4754(A) / 4761
  • Initial acquaintance with the documents:

–     ED-201: Aeronautical Information System Security (AISS) Framework Guidance
–     DO-326A/ED-202A: Airworthiness Security Process Specification
–     DO-356A/ED-203A: Airworthiness Security Methods and Considerations
–     DO-355/ED-204: Information Security Guidance for Continuing Airworthiness

–    ED-205: Process Standard for Security Certification/Declaration of Air Traffic Management/Air Navigation Services (ATM/ANS) Ground Systems

–     Planned new/revised documents

  • The Airworthiness Security Process: Risk Assessment, Security Architecture & Measures
  • Applications for Field Loadable Software (FLS), COTS equipment, In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) systems, Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs), Aircraft Network Security Program (ANSP), Security Incident Management and more
  • Where does current regulation stand: Policy-Statements, Aircraft/Avionics Certification, Special Conditions and more
  • Where do we go from here – the expected regulatory landscape for the next years, mainly at FAA/RTCA & EASA/EUROCAE


Attendees may include managers, engineers, quality assurance, certification personnel – as well as aircraft manufacturers, operators, maintainers, service providers and other aviation stakeholders, who need to prepare for Cyber-Security regulatory compliance of their aircraft/systems/organizations.
