Towards Flexible Security Testing of OT Devices

by   Florian Wilkens, et al.

In the factory of the future traditional and formerly isolated Operational Technology (OT) hardware will become connected with all kinds of networks. This leads to more complex security challenges during design, deployment and use of industrial control systems. As it is infeasible to perform security tests on production hardware and it is expensive to build hardware setups dedicated to security testing, virtualised testbeds are gaining interest. We create a testbed based on a virtualised factory which can be controlled by real and virtualised hardware. This allows for a flexible evaluation of security strategies.
