ICsec S.A. implements a project co-financed from European Funds entitled "Industrial Automation Equipment Monitoring System for cybersecurity (SMUAP)" under Sub-measure 1.1.1 of the Intelligent Development Operational Program 2014-2020 co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
The aim of the project is to conduct R&D works aimed at the development of an innovative system for monitoring industrial automation devices for the purposes of cybersecurity. The result of the R&D Project will be a product innovation - an ICT system in the field of cybersecurity in industrial networks (up to 10 Gbit), ie SMUAP (Industrial Automation Equipment Monitoring System). SMUAP will include:
Today, industrial networks are protected against cyber threats by various systems, e.g. firewalls, NACs, SIEM, IDS and IPS class systems. However, these are not sufficient solutions. As attacks increase in number and complexity, it is imperative to constantly develop more and more effective forms of protection. The development of Industry 4.0 requires highly specialized solutions in the field of cyber protection of industrial networks based on IoT and IIoT networks using LoRa, NarowBand, ZIGBEE, M2M, sigfox, 5G and 4G communication technologies. The developed SMUAP solution will automatically detect devices in the industrial network and perform vulnerability detection along with verification of gaps on the identified devices in real time.
In many industrial plants, industrial equipment is not covered by proper inventory and management, which results in long-term active operation of potentially dangerous devices in the industrial network. SMUAP will provide instant mapping of the network in a passive manner with a high level of detail. It will be possible to check the installed firmware and verify whether a given firmware version has errors and can be allowed to work in a given OT area through integration with CVE databases. Currently, such activities are most often performed manually, which is a time-consuming task (especially with an extensive network infrastructure) and with a high probability of error and an extended response time to the disclosed vulnerability / vulnerability.
