Industrial Network Security, Second Edition: Securing by Eric D. Knapp

By Eric D. Knapp

As the sophistication of cyber-attacks raises, realizing tips on how to safeguard severe infrastructure systems—energy construction, water, fuel, and different important systems—becomes extra vital, and seriously mandated. Industrial community protection, moment Edition hands you with the information you want to comprehend the vulnerabilities of those dispensed supervisory and keep an eye on structures.

The e-book examines the original protocols and purposes which are the root of commercial keep watch over platforms, and offers transparent guidance for his or her safeguard. This how-to consultant promises thorough realizing of the original demanding situations dealing with severe infrastructures, new instructions and safety features for serious infrastructure defense, wisdom of latest and evolving safety instruments, and tips about SCADA protocols and protection implementation.

  • All-new real-world examples of assaults opposed to keep watch over structures, and extra diagrams of systems
  • Expanded assurance of protocols similar to 61850, Ethernet/IP, CIP, ISA-99, and the evolution to IEC62443
  • Expanded insurance of clever Grid safety
  • New insurance of signature-based detection, exploit-based vs. vulnerability-based detection, and signature opposite engineering

Example text

References are given when specific standards, best practices, and guidance are discussed. It is however, difficult to devote a great deal of dedicated text to these documents due to the fact that they are in a constant state of change. The industrial networks that control critical infrastructures demand the strongest controls and regulations around security and reliability, and accordingly there are numerous organizations helping to achieve just that. The Critical Infrastructure Protection Act of 2001 and HSPD-7 define what they are, while others—such as NERC CIP, NRC, CFATS, and various publications of NIST—help explain what to do.

S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC, January 2010. CHAPTER Industrial Cyber Security History and Trends 3 INFORMATION IN THIS CHAPTER • Importance of Securing Industrial Networks • Evolution of the Cyber Threat • Insider Threats • Hacktivism, Cyber crime, Cyber terrorism and Cyber war Securing an industrial network and the assets connected to it, although similar in many ways to standard enterprise information system security, presents several unique challenges. While the systems and networks used in industrial control systems (ICSs) are highly specialized, they are increasingly built upon common computing platforms using commercial operating systems.

Is bulk power more important than the systems used in other industry sectors? That is a topic of heavy debate. Within the context of this book, we assume that all control systems are important, whether or not they generate or transmit energy, or whether they are defined that way by HSPD-7 or any other directive. 9 Even the production of a snack food can im­ pact many lives—through the manipulation of its ingredients or through financial impact to the producer and its workers and the communities in which they live.
