OWASP Scada Security Project

Jump to: navigation, search


Security of SCADA is great challenge and WEB-applications play huge role in it. The Project aims to research modern SCADA security issues, related to WEB-applications security used in vendors solutions (ICS, SCADA, RTU, PLC, equipment for industrial networks and etc.). According to the statistics, one of the most popular remote attack vectors on SCADA is fingerprinting of exposed industrial devices by its front-ends and server-side components through application procols (HTTP, UPnP, SNMP, FTP, SSH, Telnet). It helps the hackers to detect critical infrastructures, as well as signatures of smart-metering devices, HVAC, medical devices. The idea os the project is to gather information about the ways of improving the security measures in modern ICS environments and to create guidelines for it's hardering.

what is this project?
Name: OWASP Scada Security Project (home page)
Purpose: The primary aim of OWASP SCADA Security project is to gather information about different ICS/SCADA security threats related to WEB-applications and it’s environments, starting from reconnaissance (“foorprinting”) stage to vulnerabilities exploitation.

Primary goals:
-to aware ICS/SCADA developers about security vulnerabilities by providing information about found WEB-application viulnerabilities in software and firmware on famous vendors;
-to create and publish freeware and open-source tools for ICS/SCADA security assessment written on scripting languages.

SCADA/RTU/PLC detection cheet sheet - 09.03.2013 - (download)
Release description: The signatures for the most popular SCADA/RTU/PLC products of famous vendors. It covers several methods of detection through the application level protocols such as HTTP, FTP, SSH. The aim of the cheet sheet is to gather information about the criteria useful for external reconnaissance stage from the hacker side. Additionally, this information will be used for the SCADA Honeypot developing within the project. The file will be regularly updated, feel free to send own signatures and methods of detection.
