Video: Breaking SCADA communications


In this presentation from the InfoSec 2013 conference held October 3, 2013 in Louisville, Kentucky, Mehdi Sabraoui discusses the relative insecurity of SCADA network protocols. He covers the Sixnet Tools, taking advantage of a proprietary communication protocol supported by nearly all of Sixnet’s SCADA devices to compromise these devices across a network.

Mehdi is a Computer Science graduate student and researcher at the Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville specializing in information security.

(While we note that the Sixnet link above is temporarily offline, here’s a link to a recent ICS-CERT bulletin relating to Mehdi’s work and discussing Sixnet undocumented function codes.)
