  • Coriolis meters: Sensor innovation push accuracy, application envelope (2022/01/21 22:37)
    At their simplest, Coriolis meters operate by using a drive coil to make the tube through which mass flow is to be measured vibrate at a naturally resonant frequency. Filling the tube with a fluid causes the resonant frequency itself to shift in proportion to the density of the fluid.

  • Control System Cyber Incidents Are Real and Current Prevention and Mitigation Strategies Are Not Working (2022/01/19 20:32)

    There have been almost 12 million control system cyber incidents globally across all sectors resulting in more than 1,500 deaths, and more than $90BillionUS in direct damage. Our article, “Control System Cyber Incidents Are Real—and Current Prevention and Mitigation Strategies Are Not Working”, has been published in the January issue of IEEE Computer magazine. This article adds focus to the January 5th IEEE-led meeting on the lack of cyber security in process sensors in any industry cyber security standard. Additionally, the NATO article, “Guide for Protecting Industrial Automation and Control Systems Against Cyber Incidents” by Vytautas Butrimas also focused on control systems. Compare these control system efforts to US critical infrastructure protection efforts which have not addressed the unique aspects of insecure control system devices. Now recognize that Russia, China, Iran, and others are aware of these shortcomings. Hopefully, we will respond accordingly.

  • Distributed Systems and Critical Infrastructure Protection course at University of Missouri Science and Technology (2022/01/14 07:20)

    Starting January 18, 2022, I will be a guest speaker for Dr. George Markowsky’s course on Distributed Systems and Critical Infrastructure Protection. I will be providing 2 lectures and feedback on class projects. In preparation for the course, I went back to a short course Jeff Dagle from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and I gave at the March 18, 2009 IEEE PES Power Systems Conference and Exposition in Seattle. I had expected that I could use some of the pictures but would have to update the verbiage. However, with few exceptions, the verbiage was still valid. What does that say about the state of control system cyber security? Dr. Markowsky and I hope to use the course to improve the state of critical infrastructure protection. For further information, please contact Dr. George Markowsky at markov@mst.edu.
