One of the topics I'm hoping to discuss with NASA and Orbital on my upcoming visit to the Antares rocket launch is how rockets and spacecraft are controlled remotely - and how this communication is secured from tampering by outside parties.
I'm not a rocket scientist - and since this really is rocket science - I figured I should start reading up on the topic.
I found on Archive.org a book from 1964 titled "Radio Control of Rockets". The book was written by two Russian scientists and contributed to by NASA. It discusses the theory behind remote control of a rocket.
