The Sum of All Fears, When ICS/SCADA are Compromised
11:30 - 12:30
In the past, the cybersecurity issues of Industrial control systems (ICS) are neglected. However, ICS/SCADA connects with people's lives which consists of power, water, traffic, manufacturing and multiple industry. In the past 10 years, more and more ICS/SCADA cybersecurity incidents are happened which may cause loss of life and property, and if we live without power, water, communication, traffic. That is a terrible thing. That is why we need to care about ICS/SCADA cybersecurity issues, and make sure we are in a security environment.
In this presentation, we first talk about the background knowledge of ICS/SCADA, and what kinds of security threats and attack vectors in ICS/SCADA. And then, we analyze an Industrial communication protocol, and write Lua plugin for Wireshark and exploit code as a hacker. In this part, we provide demo which shows hackers hack LC with Industrial communication protocol and PLC’s service to compromise ICS/SCADA. After hacking demo, we demonstrate the rotection strategy to secure ICS/SCADA. When we know how hackers attack ICS/SCADA, we know how to defend and deploy our protection strategy to achieve the most effective results.
