The protection of satellite assets is much on the minds of users, including commercial as well as government and military sectors that depend upon these assets for communication. This issue of the Journal focuses on the specific threats that could potentially impair space-to-earth communications.

The nature of the vulnerabilities within space-based communication systems are described. Policies and practices that could help to insure reliable communication and keep these assets and their signals safe and secure are suggested.

The Online Journal of Space Communication aspires to be a collection point for information about Satellite Security. We encourage scholarly and professional contributions from those with information and knowledge to share.

If you have a research report, a conference presentation, an analytical article that should be added to give breadth or depth or perspective to this discussion, you are welcome to send a brief abstract to our Guest Editor for this issue.
