Practical Modern SCADA Protocols: DNP3 and Related Systems (IDC Technology)

Practical Modern SCADA Protocols: DNP3, 60870.5 and Related Systems (IDC Technology)SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems are at the heart of the modern industrial enterprise ranging from mining plants, water and electrical utility installations to oil and gas plants. In a market that is crowded with high-level monographs and reference guides, more practical information for professional engineers is required. This book covers the essentials of SCADA communication systems focussing on DNP3, the IEC 60870.5 standard and other new developments in this area. It commences with a brief review of the fundamentals of SCADA systems’ hardware, software and the communications systems (such as RS-232, RS-485, Ethernet and TCP/IP) that connect the SCADA Modules together. A solid review is then done on the DNP3 and IEC 60870.5 protocols where its features, message structure, practical benefits and applications are discussed. This book provides you with the knowledge to design your next SCADA system more effectively with a focus on using the latest communications technologies available.

* Covers the essentials of SCADA communication systems and other new developments in this area
* Covers a wide range of specialist networking topics and other topics ideal for practicing engineers and technicians looking to further and develop their knowledge of the subject
* Extremely timely subject as the industry has made a strong movement towards standard protocols in modern SCADA communications systems

Security Assessment of SCADA Protocols

Security Assessment of SCADA Protocols - A Taxonomy Based Methodology for the Identification of Security Vulnerabilities in SCADA ProtocolsModern industrial facilities, such as oil refineries, chemical factories, electric power generation plants, etc. are large, complex, distributed systems. These systems are monitored and controlled by networks of special purpose embedded computing devices such as sensors, actuators, and PLCs. These industrial control networks are commonly called SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) networks. The increasing interconnectivity of SCADA networks has exposed them to a wide range of network security problems. One of the important issues in securing SCADA networks is to identify vulnerabilities in the communication protocols. This book analyses existing qualitative security assessment guidelines, specifically attack and vulnerability taxonomies, and proposes a new framework for organizing information about known attacks and vulnerabilities to find unknown or similar vulnerabilities in new systems. This framework is used to organize information related to known vulnerabilities in SCADA protocols into a taxonomy that provides a systematic methodology for the security assessment of other SCADA protocols.

Netcat Power Tools

Netcat Power ToolsOriginally released in 1996, Netcat is a netowrking program designed to read and write data across both Transmission Control Protocol TCP and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) connections using the TCP/Internet Protocol (IP) protocol suite. Netcat is often referred to as a “Swiss Army knife” utility, and for good reason. Just like the multi-function usefullness of the venerable Swiss Army pocket knife, Netcat’s functionality is helpful as both a standalone program and a backe-end tool in a wide range of applications. Some of the many uses of Netcat include port scanning, transferring files, grabbing banners, port listening and redirection, and more nefariously, a backdoor. This is the only book dedicated to comprehensive coverage of the tool’s many features, and by the end of this book, you’ll discover how Netcat can be one of the most valuable tools in your arsenal.

* Get Up and Running with Netcat Simple yet powerful…Don’t let the trouble-free installation and the easy command line belie the fact that Netcat is indeed a potent and powerful program.
* Go PenTesting with Netcat Master Netcat’s port scanning and service identification capabilities as well as obtaining Web server application information. Test and verify outbound firewall rules and avoid detection by using antivirus software and the Window Firewall. Also, create a backdoor using Netcat.
* Conduct Enumeration and Scanning with Netcat, Nmap, and More! Netcat’s not the only game in town…Learn the process of network of enumeration and scanning, and see how Netcat along with other tools such as Nmap and Scanrand can be used to thoroughly identify all of the assets on your network.
* Banner Grabbing with Netcat Banner grabbing is a simple yet highly effective method of gathering information about a remote target, and can be performed with relative ease with the Netcat utility.
* Explore the Dark Side of Netcat See the various ways Netcat has been used to provide malicious, unauthorized access to their targets. By walking through these methods used to set up backdoor access and circumvent protection mechanisms through the use of Netcat, we can understand how malicious hackers obtain and maintain illegal access. Embrace the dark side of Netcat, so that you may do good deeds later.
* Transfer Files Using Netcat The flexability and simple operation allows Netcat to fill a niche when it comes to moving a file or files in a quick and easy fashion. Encryption is provided via several different avenues including integrated support on some of the more modern Netcat variants, tunneling via third-party tools, or operating system integrated IPsec policies.
* Troubleshoot Your Network with Netcat Examine remote systems using Netat’s scanning ability. Test open ports to see if they really are active and see what protocls are on those ports. Communicate with different applications to determine what problems might exist, and gain insight into how to solve these problems.
* Sniff Traffic within a System Use Netcat as a sniffer within a system to collect incoming and outgoing data. Set up Netcat to listen at ports higher than 1023 (the well-known ports), so you can use Netcat even as a normal user.

* Comprehensive introduction to the #4 most popular open source security tool available
* Tips and tricks on the legitimate uses of Netcat
* Detailed information on its nefarious purposes
* Demystifies security issues surrounding Netcat
* Case studies featuring dozens of ways to use Netcat in daily tasks
