2) The transmitted data would be sent encrypted and only the
ciphertext would be recorded by the ground stations. Encryption would
be done using symmetric ciphers. The encryption key would be set
before every flight by a NTSB technician, and known only by the NTSB
(or the equivalent agency if the flight originates overseas).
With the greatest of respect at this time, I still wish that US posters would
consider the outside world. I find it difficult to believe, genuinely, that
after what happened last week, people still have the mindset that US-based
agencies somehow have worldwide authority and access. The NTSB is a US agency,
and any scheme like this - which in my mind has great merit - would need the
oversite of an international agency to work.
