Safety Network International e.V. publishes its second Automation Security Bulletin: Know your network!
The second Automation Security Bulletin "Know your network!" shows why something that's so simple at first glance is so important. As Ethernet is the base technology, communication paths may subsequently arise, which may be wide open to abuse from attackers because they are unknown and, in a worst case scenario, unprotected. Knowledge of all communication connections and types of communication is essential for targeted, cost-effective planning of measures designed to improve plant security. The aim is to guarantee outstanding plant availability and to ensure help is quickly available in the event of an error.
