  • How to keep your control system young (2021/11/29 22:54)
    As the pace of technology innovation races ever faster ahead, the notion of control system longevity is under pressure like never before. Virtualization has in some cases helped to liberate users from the short lifecycles of the general-purpose computer hardware and operating systems upon which they run, allowing the application...
  • Power grid cyber security recommendations still don’t address key grid cyber vulnerabilities (2021/11/29 05:33)

    In August 2021, DNV published DNV-RP-0575, “Recommended Practice, Cyber security for power grid protection devices”. The Recommended Practice is important as it was developed based on the results of a joint research and development project with Fingrid (Finland), Stattnet SF (Norway), and Svenska Kraftnet (Sweden) and used by T&D India following the Chinese cyberattacks. However, the NIST 800-82, NERC CIP, and the ISA IEC 62443 series of standards are public. Consequently, the DNV Recommended Practice is similar to the one issued by Mojtaba S. who is an industrial security specialist for the Electric Industry of Iran. The DNV Recommended Practice is valuable in having another set of recommendations for the OT networks and programs that serve as the front end of the electric grids’ facilities. But it’s not sufficient as the Recommended Practice does not address grid physics issues nor does it address the components that directly operate the grid. This gap can lead to critical grid vulnerabilities being exploited without adequate forensics which is unacceptable.

  • Can technology be an impediment to developing rudimentary skills? (2021/11/24 22:45)
    When you only prepare a feast once a year, serving your guests a roast that is as lovely to behold as it is to consume can be elusive. Even with Wi-Fi connected or Bluetooth capable temperature sensors strategically stabbed into the bird, we’re likely stressed about duplicating the delicacy served...

  • How HART transcends physical layer constraints (2021/11/23 20:02)
    Ethernet-APL technology is an important technology milestone, enabling a new high performance paradigm of digital field communications for the process industries. But from a practical perspective, there are millions of analog 4-20 mA instruments installed around the world, and growing. No one will be tearing them out anytime soon.
  • The utilities are not addressing the cyber security that will keep lights on (2021/11/22 20:17)

    On November 16-17, 2021 the utility industry conducted its biennial grid security exercise – GridEx VI. The exercise addressed the hybridized attacks of IT and OT networks which included ransomware as well as physical security. The lack of cybersecurity in the grid’s process sensors is a common mode vulnerability that affects both situational awareness and incident response plans. Aurora is a gap in electrical grid protecting that can render the grid inoperative for 9-18 MONTHS by damaging expensive and difficult to replace machinery. It can also damage natural gas compressor stations. The Chinese hardware backdoors represents a supply chain compromise that can lead to unanalyzed grid disturbances affecting major population centers. Yet hardware supply chain issues were not addressed. Why won’t the utilities adequately address what is their most important function which is keeping the lights on?
