[Sea-sec] Action Items from Rome Fall 2016 Meetings - CSTS

I don't remember how CSTS came into the discussion at Rome, but if you feel that there is little or nothing to provide for this document, then we should use something else.

The existing document appendix has sections on:

* ESA Telecommand (which will be replaced by a description of Sentinel security)

* ISS (should we delete this or update it?)

* EUMETSAT (Guillaume is tasked to update this)

* STRV (should be deleted)

* ESA ATV (should we keep this or delete it?)

If there is a particular DLR (or DLR in association with another agency) security implementation that you feel is a better fit, then I'd say go for it in place of CSTS.

Any recollections of why CSTS came up last time?

Dear all,

as mentioned in the Rome MoMs, I had an action item on the Security Protocols
GB; it was about providing a section about CSTS.

I had a look in the CSTS CSS WG`s documents and also a discussion with one of
my colleagues who is part of that WG.
The so called "framework" - describing the general way of how to set up a CSTS
- is about to beeing published. On top of this framework the WG is working on
two concrete CSTS Services for hte transfer of Monotoring Data and Tracking
Data between different entities on ground.

Since the SLE services are well-established, they have no plans for building
up a service transferring TM/TC/AOS frames. Like that, the changes in the
frame format when applying SDLS are - up to now - not relevant for CSTS.
(Nevertheless my colleague was assuming that it should be possible to also
define a service for TM/TC/AOS frames as long as they would know the total
frame length and the number of the VC.)

Taking into account the above, I`m not sure if we should say something about
CSTS in the GB.
What do you think? Any thoughts are highly appreciated.
