Industrial Network Security

Securing Critical Infrastructure Networks for Smart Grid, SCADA, and Other Industrial Control Systems

Industrial Network Security examines the unique protocols and applications that are the foundation of industrial control systems and provides you with comprehensive guidelines for their protection. While covering compliance guidelines, attacks and vectors, and even evolving security tools, this book gives you a clear understanding of SCADA and Control System protocols and how they operate.

  • "One of the most mysterious areas of information security is industrial system security...What raises the mystery even higher is that the stakes in the area of industrial security are extremely high. While the loss of trade secret information may kill a business, the loss of electricity generating capability may kill not just one person, but potentially thousands. And finally the mystery is solved-with this well-researched book on industrial system network security."--Dr. Anton A. Chuvakin, Security Warrior Consulting
