Event Title

T2-F: A Remotely Accessible, Configurable, Instrumented ICS Lab for Attack, Defend, and Forensics Research and Education

Location

Coastal

Start Date

Description

Industrial Control Systems drive many of our critical infrastructures, and the security of these systems directly affects the availability and reliability of services provided by those critical infrastructures. Most ICS elements were not designed with security in mind, and in fact were never intended for connection to untrusted networks. We are now engaged in a fast-paced and very important race to secure these systems from both defensive and forensic points of view. Preparing students for this work requires a thorough grounding in scientific principles, a full understanding of engineering processes, and experiential learning with actual devices and environments. While an engineering education address the first two requirements, in this work we aim to address this third requirement for realistic hands-on activities. We constructed a remotely accessible, instrumented, and re-configurable ICS system on which students can learn by performing offensive, defensive, and forensic cyber security exercises.
