Adversary in the Middle

Adversaries may attempt to position themselves between two or more networked devices using an adversary-in-the-middle (AiTM) technique.[1]

If unauthenticated gateways or unauthenticated interplanetary nodes are used, an adversary can substitute them with an own resource to collect or modify transmitted data.A satellite with stolen credential can take place into a dynamic constellation and collect data.
