  title={Security issues in SCADA networks},
  author={Vinay M. Igure and Sean A. Laughter and Ronald D. Williams},
  journal={Computers & Security},
The increasing interconnectivity of SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) networks has exposed them to a wide range of network security problems. This paper provides an overview of all the crucial research issues that are involved in strengthening the cyber security of SCADA networks. The paper describes the general architecture of SCADA networks and the properties of some of the commonly used SCADA communication protocols. The general security threats and vulnerabilities in these… CONTINUE READING
