Evaluating the Effects of Cybersecurity Measures Using a Railroad Simulation Model

April 25, 2018 @ 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Today’s industrial systems are increasingly interconnected by advanced communication networks, cybersecurity of such systems are becoming a challenge to the industry. NIST has developed a testbed to study the effects of cybersecurity measures on industrial control systems. The metrics and measurement methodology will help the industry to evaluate the system performance when implementing cybersecurity measures.

In this presentation, we will present the framework we develop to integrate a railroad simulator and cybersecurity tools to perform evaluation on the railroad operation and the metrics we use to measure the operational impact.

We will also discuss the use of cybersecurity tools like behavioral anomaly detection tool and ICS application whitelisting tool in the industrial control system environment.
