Project #87636 - Case Study Boeing 787

This module item is similar to the previous case study. You need to analyze and study the subject presented below and compose a report answering the questions posed. Your writing should concentrate on the development of specific events, issues, or conditions of the subject and their relationships. It should involve research and documented evidence on the subject. You final draft will be screened and indexed using Turnitin.

Guidelines and notes:


The Boeing 787 is a fantastic aircraft with versions capable of seating up to 300 passengers with a range of up to 8,200 nautical miles. This aircraft is full of technology including a composite material skin, a fiber optic data bus for networking, and a high tech in-flight entertainment system (IFE). During the certification process the FAA issued a special condition that required Boeing to prove the aircraft’s common network was secure against hacker intrusion.

Some industry analysts have pointed out that the only reason for this special condition is because the technology used on the aircraft are beyond definitions and concepts contained within current certification rules.

Read this article which discuss network security on the aircraft:  FAA Responds to Boeing Security Story (Links to an external site.).
