Abstract: Low Earth orbit satellite (LEOS) communication system can be successfully applied in automated systems of remote monitoring and control of hydrocarbons production and transportation in the Extreme North. Herewith, continuous communications are possible if LEOS communication system is comprised of up to 60 satellites. With the increase in number of countries exploring deposits of Arctic shelf, the number of LEOS systems will also increase. This could lead to such situation when an alien satellite being in the radio coverage zone of receiver installed on terminal station of unattended object can impose previously tapped control command. As a consequence, the unattended facility of hydrocarbon production and transportation can fail. In order to prevent such situation, it is proposed to apply identification-friend-or-foe (IFF) systems for satellite. High information security in such systems is provided by zero-knowledge proof of knowledge (ZKPK) authentication protocol. Aiming at improvement of satellite identification rate, it is proposed to apply polynomial residue number system (PRNS), since arithmetic operations in such codes are executed independently and in parallel by bases. This work is aimed at reduction of time of satellite authentication by IFF system due to the use of PRNS codes.
