Skip to comments.Defending control systems against cyber-attacks (Japan)
Posted on 06/16/2013 11:46:01 PM PDT by TexGrill
Mayumi Kamizono / Yomiuri Shimbun Staff Writer A whole city blacks out, the traffic lights are down and public transportation is paralyzed--such a scenario caused by cyber-attacks on infrastructure was previously thought to occur only in movies and books. However, such concerns are becoming a reality, as seen in Iran, where a computer virus crippled the operation of nuclear facilities in 2010.
To prevent such attacks in Japan, the countrys first cybersecurity testing facility exclusively for control systems opened last month.
Control systems integrate and manage equipment and machines at factories or other infrastructure. Information networks for such systems are increasingly connected to outside networks, making them more vulnerable to intruders.
End of security myth

I have been playing with some chap Raspberry Pi computers..they are perfect for playing honeypot games.
How many hacks did you spot originating from the White House?
chap = cheap
It chaps my hide we have no way to edit a post. :-)
I hates typows
It is interesting where some of the ip addresses originate.
I have a list of many of the TOR system ip addresses and lots of connections are through that.
So I got me some Raspberry Pi to use as a pump controller in a hot, dirty environment. I’m pretty pleased on the whole, a complete Linux box for $35 is pretty sweet. Actually I paid $80 with the case, HDMI cable and 4GB flash plus shipping.
I’ve had it for about 2 weeks. I have seen one hard crash in that time which is kind of worrisome. What kind of reliability are you seeing with your Pi?
They are very reliable IMO.
They do need a robust 5v supply. I got a few cheap powered USB hubs and all is well :-)
I’m waiting for my new BeagleBone Black to arrive... it looks like a fun toy to play with.
I just love this stuff :-)
Are you going with HoneyD?
I’m setting one up this summer to study, but I’m using an old XP machine. Maybe a Raspberry PI wold be better.
I have used HoneyD but not so far on the Pi.
I have that on an old PC but it has not been on the network for a while now...it’s good tho IMO.
All of this is fun sport :-)
