Understanding industrial network traffic, dissectors and Lua and Kaitai

Posted on 06/07/2018, by INCIBE
Not only is the interpretation of network traffic crucial to analyse the safety and performance of a network structure, but also for other tasks, such as incident management, the optimisation of our network infrastructure or for didactic purposes. In order to do so, it is necessary to have dissectors that help separate each of the fields that make up a protocol, and allow them to be individually analysed.

Accessing Control Systems Securely: Two-Factor Authentication and Remote Access

Posted on 05/31/2018, by INCIBE
From the point of view of cybersecurity, access to automation and industrial control systems is one of the most critical control points and that's why special care must be taken when it comes to applying access security and fortification policies. On occasions, it is necessary to carry out remote tasks such as, for example, maintenance, upgrading or device or application management work. Thus, external personnel outside our company may perform said tasks, including manufacturers, wholesalers or providers of services, making it necessary to protect these accesses from potential threats.
