Abstract:

The research goal involved developing improved methods for securing Programmable Logic Controller PLC devices against unauthorized entry and mitigating the risk of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition SCADA attack by detecting malicious software andor trojan hardware. A Correlation Based Anomaly Detection CBAD process was developed to enable 1 software anomaly detection discriminating between various operating conditions to detect malfunctioning or malicious software, firmware, etc., and 2 hardware component discrimination discriminating between various hardware components to detect malfunctioning or counterfeit, trojan, etc., components.
