Experimental Evaluation of Cyber Intrusions into Highly Critical Power Control Systems

This paper addresses the assessment of cyber threats to communication networks and systems having a critical role in power grid operation. The probability of cyber threats to critical infrastructures has been increasing with the deployment of advanced automation and communication technologies relying on standardized protocols. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) security must be even more emphasized in the heterogeneous distributed architectures needed for controlling new generation power systems, e.g. active distribution grids.

This paper analyses complex intrusion experiments carried out in the Power Control System – Resilience Testing Laboratory of RSE. The paper focuses on sneaky intrusion scenarios where the attacker forces the protective barriers implemented at different layers of the architecture thus gaining access to sensitive connections in order to arbitrarily modify the state of the power system.
