Satellites as new drones

In 2040, a huge amount of new micro-satellites will be in orbit and travelling through our solar system. This system, critical for earth and inner-solar-system communication gains new attention for satellite hackers not only to control and sniff on communication but also to abuse this system to control connected devices and the satellites itself. Base ransom to advanced "destroy" -focussed attacks may be possible.

Lion Kimbro I don't agree -- but not because I don't think your basic idea is right. But rather, it's the hijacking of the systems that I think is off. I think there will be very sophisticated encryption of the system, perhaps even using one-time pads. I'm thinking: The bandwidth will be very low, and the cost of the data storage for the one-time-pad will be so cheap (ROM data density increasing), that this encryption method could be feasible. So the system would be nearly bulletproof -- at least the space-based portion. On the ground, systems will continue to be hackable, so perhaps you are right.

Fakyou Marco, releasing miniature drones will be very difficult and making them just to recreate the far from home movie I mean what? I think we should create flying cars and robots because they are obviously our future. And they have been our future for like 34 years.
