SCADA, A PLC’s Story

Previous month I’ve been a speaker at the M0leCon Conference (Turin, Italy, 30 November) with a talk named:

SCADA, A PLC’s Story

During the last few years, SCADA quickly gained the major news headlights with different frightening articles: from STUXNET to breaches like the electrical power supply grid in Ukraine (December 2015). Since SCADA systems are actively used across various industries (oil & gas, pharma, power plants, critical infrastructures) to perform critical operations on daily basis, SCADA security has also become a hot topic in the industry.

This talk will provide a comprehensive overview of the most common SCADA components, known malware and incidents as well as security issues affecting this technology, including existing vulnerabilities in different modules. As part of the presentation, we will disassemble and reverse engineer a PLC and its protocol. This model will be used to demonstrate some aspects of discovered security vulnerabilities.
