The objective of STTR Topic N16A-T013, Cyber Forensic Tool Kit for Machinery Control, is to develop live digital forensics that, at run time, provide a cyber-protection strategy and aid in identification of malfunctions due to malicious and non-malicious events, while ensuring minimal impact on overall system performance. A proposal has been prepared by TDI Technologies, Inc., a small business based in King of Prussia, PA, which includes the following tasks: Phase I Base: Task 1 Define applicable policies for target SCADA system; Task 2 Obtain and analyze data samples for system and protocol operations; Task 3 Model system using graph-based FSMs and identify live forensic requirements; Task 4 Perform feasibility analysis for implementing live forensic requirements as LKMs; Task 5 Perform feasibility analysis for extending existing open-source forensic frameworks; Task 6 - Design and layout CyFT; Task 7 - Testing and validation for feasibility demonstration; Task 8 - Prepare a final report. Phase I Option: Task 9 - Define and develop security and cyberforensic ontologies; Task 10 - Define a comprehensive and portable framework for vulnerability assessment; Task 11 - Develop an open system architecture framework for CyFT; Task 12 Prepare a final report.
