Abstract
Today, Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) is popularly deployed in automated control system of many of the Nation¿s critical infrastructures. Most of these systems were designed and built for operational efficiency. With cyber attack becoming an important factor, it is becoming essential to protect SCADA systems. Over the past couple of years industry is integrating many security features like firewall, VPN, IDS, and encryption to protect SCADA systems from cyber attacks. This project proposes an innovative mechanism that will introduce security, high visibility, intrusion prevention & detection, geographic awareness, and higher efficiency along with allowing integration of industry standard security mechanisms. This technology will be able to integrate into many of the popular SCADA software system enabling user transparency. This mechanism is flexible and applicable to most industry sectors such as electric power generation, water and wastewater treatment, gas industry, chemical processing, etc. This technology virtually eliminates hack attacks and data hijacking. It also pinpoints the exact location of any attempted hack attacks enabling quick response.
