Airport cybersecurity stems from the combination of two big domains: airports and security. Airports, by providing services and transportation of both people and cargo, represent some of the biggest investments in any country. Ensuring the security of these facilities is a necessity in every possible aspect, and many different tools and techniques are employed to this end. In this context, we aim to overcome the difference in representation formats used within airports, facilitating communication and knowledge exchange between cybersecurity systems and solutions. The focus of this paper is to propose an approach for a new airport cybersecurity ontology, the Airport Security Interoperability Integrated Ontology, which makes use of existing ontologies on the domains of airports, aircraft and cybersecurity. For this conception to take place, a careful study of the state of the art regarding ontologies for both airport security and cybersecurity took place, and the more relevant findings were interconnected and expanded upon, resulting in the new proposed ontology.
