Examples are disclosed that relate to the securing of a distributed sensor system. One example provides a security component configured to be communicatively coupled between a trusted element and a distributed sensor system. The security component includes a secured controller configured to receive a signal for forwarding to a sensor of the distributed sensor system, authenticate the signal as being sent from the trusted element, and forward the authenticated signal to the sensor. Further, when the signal is not authenticated as being sent from the trusted element, the secured controller may be configured to not forward the signal to the sensor. The security component also includes a feedback controller configured to analyze signals received from the distributed sensor system and send one or more feedback instructions to the trusted element based at least on the signals from the distributed sensor system.
