MITRE matrix: TTP in ICS

The MITRE matrix: tactics and techniques in industrial settings

Posted on 02/03/2022, by INCIBE
Monitoring and analyzing security incidents in Industrial Control Systems (ICS) has been a priority for many organizations for a while now. As a response to this need, and given the great success in other areas specialized in cybersecurity, the MITRE organization has developed a matrix that collects many of the tactics, techniques and procedures detected in the industrial world. This article seeks to make the contents and potential uses of said matrix known.

CORBAsec: security in CORBA middleware

Posted on 01/20/2022, by INCIBE
Not all industrial control systems operate with the same programming language given that, depending on the manufacturer, devices will work with a specific software and programming language. This may be a problem for plant managers in industrial systems, as the interconnectivity between devices becomes impossible, or at least, is further complicated. One solution that has emerged in order to connect systems from different operating systems is CORBA standard and CORBAsec, its development with added security.

Control of multicast requests in the IEC 61850 standard

Posted on 05/27/2021, by INCIBE
In previous articles an introduction was given to the 61850 regulation and the different protocols of which it consists. As explained in those articles, the GOOSE and SV (Sample Values) protocols, included in the standard, use multicast frames. Security is very difficult to implement in this type of frame, but there are a number of measures that make possible to raise the security level.
