Cyber-security of SCADA and Other Industrial Control Systems by Edward J. M. Colbert

By Edward J. M. Colbert

This e-book presents a accomplished evaluation of the basic safeguard of commercial keep watch over platforms (ICSs), together with Supervisory regulate and information Acquisition (SCADA) structures and pertaining to cyber-physical structures mostly. cautious recognition is given to supplying the reader with transparent and complete heritage and reference fabric for every subject pertinent to ICS safety. This ebook bargains solutions to such questions as: Which particular working and safeguard concerns could lead on to a lack of potency and operation? What equipment can be utilized to observe and safeguard my process? How am i able to layout my process to lessen threats?This ebook bargains chapters on ICS cyber threats, assaults, metrics, danger, situational knowledge, intrusion detection, and safety trying out, offering an valuable reference set for present method vendors who desire to securely configure and function their ICSs. This publication is suitable for non-specialists to boot. instructional details is equipped in preliminary chapters and within the beginnings of different chapters as wanted. The booklet concludes with complicated issues on ICS governance, responses to assaults on ICS, and destiny defense of the web of Things.

2002). 21 steps to improve cyber security of SCADA networks. Washington, DC: US Department of Energy. pdf. M. 1 Introduction A cyber attack on an ICS must begin at an ICS element, and influence some of the other elements. For this reason, we begin the discussion of ICS security by introducing the basic components of ICSs, their functions, variety, and ways in which they connect and interact to produce the intended effects. As we started to discuss in the previous chapter, ICSs monitor and control industrial processes across a myriad of industries and critical infrastructures on a global scale (Weiss 2010).

In this chapter, we explore how current state-of-the art wireless communications technologies could be utilized in ICSs with a goal to protect these systems against malicious cyber and physical activities. To provide a more concrete context for this discussion, we focus on an ICS as applied to smart grid systems. We first provide a general overview of the wireless technologies that can be used by ICSs, exploring the suitability of current wireless technologies with ICSs. Then, we discuss the pertinent cyber and physical threats to the ICSs.
