The purpose of this document is to provide operational guidance for key life-cycle management, wh...ich refers to the phases through which digital certificates and associated cryptographic keys progress, from creation through usage to retirement. Additionally, this document provides implementation guidance for online certificate provisioning of aircraft systems. The scope includes both the onboard part (aircraft system) as well as the ground part (PKI provider and Ground Infrastructure). Consideration of both onboard and ground provides the benefit of security considerations being included in the process flow and chain of custody. Specifically, the management to and from the aircraft is defined within a workflow. The guidance is based on open international standards that are adapted to the aviation environment, recognizing that a typical commercial airplane has a long lifespan, its operational environment is highly complex and regulated, and multiple stakeholders operate ground-based systems that communicate with airplanes. Using a standardized and consistent key management approach, as proposed in this document, helps to reduce cost of design, implementation, and operation even across a heterogeneous fleet.
This standard defines a common configuration report format that can be retrieved from an aircraft... for use by ground tools and maintenance personnel. Reports will be generated in Extensible Markup Language (XML) format and structured as defined by this document. Several optional elements and attributes are defined to allow flexibility for a given report. This standard provides aircraft manufacturers, regulatory agencies, and airlines a format standard for aircraft configuration reporting, and facilitates automated comparison of configuration data reports (e.g., authorized versus as flying, etc.).

ARINC 858 Part 2 describes the principles of operation for an IPS gateway that enables ACARS application messages to be exchanged between an IPS aircraft and a ground ACARS host. ARINC 858 Part 2 also describes the principles of operation for an IPS gateway that enables OSI-based application messages to be exchanged between an IPS host and an OSI end system. This product was developed in coordination with ICAO WG-I, RTCA SC-223, and EUROCAE WG-108.
