Industrial Control Systems (ICS), a collective term used to describe different types of control systems and associated instrumentation are extensively used in industries such as utilities (electric, water and gas), transportation, building control systems, oil and gas processing, and chemical manufacturing. ICS comprises of various sub-systems ranging from Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) to Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) and networking elements in between that collectively operate and manage automated industrial systems. With evolving technology, ICS security has advanced from “air gapped” to being directly connected over internet and utilizing least-cost routing. While more convenient and less expensive, least-cost routing increases the likelihood of cyber threats, so it is imperative for ICS networks to be more resilient and secure.
