Secure VM for monitoring industrial process controllers


The biological immune system is distributed in nature and provides a rich metaphor for its artificial counterpart. Our research focuses on immunological metaphors for information gathering, analysis, decision making and deployment of attack responses. In particular, we are interested in the detection and prevention of malware which affect Industrial Process Control (IPC) systems such as SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition). This paper describes an on-going research effort to include a secure VM (or a dedicated host) to the SCADA Network to monitor process behavior and all software updates. Copyright 2011 ACM.
