episode 268: Knocking down the legs of the industrial security triad. [Research Saturday]

Pascal Ackerman, OT Security Strategist from Guidepoint Security, joins Dave to discuss his work on discovering a vulnerability in the integrity of common HMI client-server protocol. This research is a Proof of Concept (PoC) attack on the integrity of data flowing across the industrial network with the intention of intercepting, viewing, and even manipulating values sent to (and from) the HMI, ultimately trying to trick the user into making a wrong decision, ultimately affecting the proper operation of the process.

In this research, they are targeting Rockwell Automation’s FactoryTalk View SE products, trying to highlight the lack of integrity and confidentiality on the production network and the effect that has on the overall security of the production environment.
