"but sorry about the need to keep your devices in a special area of the plane that's locked"

That may not be prevent us from security breaches, better to make devices secure.

"No more devices in the passenger seating area"

I would give more emphases to the other side, plans' electronic systems could be isolated completed from passengers' reach.

Dumb terminals
 

Why are these IFEs not dumb terminals, it would make more sense to have all the controls in the back secure area and have dumb terminals for the passengers which they can not do anything but choose options available.

Re: Luxury vs Lives
Unfortunately, jcavery, I'm too blunt and basic in my approach to work in an industry like that.  My expertise is at the code level.  For me, it's simple.  Just as we don't let concert-goers bring weapons like guns or knives to a concert, so should we not allow wireless-capable (or otherwise) devices into an environment that has life-sustaining but hackable systems.  I'm clearly not going to win that argument in a commercially bound industry :-)

Re: Luxury vs Lives
Christian, I agree, you have good ideas. You should consider working for an airline company and help them out with their security architecture. If we can't keep devices out of people's hands, at least we can get the most intelligent/threat aware people looking at the security designs to minimize the risks.

Luxury vs Lives
It boggles my mind the level of spoiled we allow customers these days when possession of a small wireless-enabled device could mean the difference between life and death.  While for this specific vulnerability there is some debate still as to what exactly is possible, it doesn't mean for other hacks being worked on or already out there someone couldn't bring a plane down with access to such a device.  Bottom line: No more devices in the passenger seating area.  Here's your TV and some free food, but sorry about the need to keep your devices in a special area of the plane that's locked.  Deal with it.

The 10 Most Impactful Types of Vulnerabilities for Enterprises Today
Managing system vulnerabilities is one of the old est - and most frustrating - security challenges that enterprise defenders face. Every software application and hardware device ships with intrinsic flaws - flaws that, if critical enough, attackers can exploit from anywhere in the world. It's crucial that defenders take stock of what areas of the tech stack have the most emerging, and critical, vulnerabilities they must manage. It's not just zero day vulnerabilities. Consider that CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog lists vulnerabilitlies in widely used applications that are "actively exploited," and most of them are flaws that were discovered several years ago and have been fixed. There are also emerging vulnerabilities in 5G networks, cloud infrastructure, Edge applications, and firmwares to consider.
