ScriptGen as its LI replayer, and its architecture is similar to that of Honeybrid de- scribed in Section 2.2.6.4. In particular, SGNET uses different backend honeypots for malware handling. Argos collects and contains malware samples or forwards code injection attacks to the exploit modes in nepenthes. ScriptGen acts as a general vul- nerability module for nepenthes, and it uses the traffic generated by Argos to update its configuration. Additionally, SGNET integrates with Anubis and VirusTotal for malware analysis. Finally, a unique feature of SGNET is that its distributed architec- ture allows partners around the world to deploy sensors using a common VM image. Traffic found by the sensors are used to update the FSMs of other distributed nodes. Variations of SGNET have also been used in two other advanced hybrid honey- pots [GLB12]. Mozzie extended the containment capabilities of SGNET by using ScripGen to model both sides of a malware conversation. This way command and control traffic, for instance, would not have to leave the network in order to allow for full exploitation. Instead, ScriptGen is used to model the victim in one virtual instance and the master controller in another virtual instance. Finally, AWESOME, which stands for Automated Web Emulation for Secure Operation of a Malware- Analysis Environment, uses ScriptGen to power its replay [FB13]. Like the other projects, Argos is used for malware collection. AWESOME, however, uses external script handlers from Honeyd and Nitro for malware analysis.

Data Acquisition System Using Programmable Logic Controller

Data Acquisition System Using Programmable Logic Controller

Large industrialized amenities often contain number of automation devices such as sensors, actuator sand controllers that can be distributed over large area. They differ in amount of information they generate, refresh rate and required reliability. Specific requirements forced by industrial environment, possibly harsh conditions and cost saving factor must be also taken into consideration [1]. Such diverse demands led to development of various industrial automatic systems. Programmable logic controller (PLC) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) are becoming increasingly popular in the daily work. A general approach is presented to exploit models in data acquisition and controlling the different parameters, by integrating them with Programmable logic controller (PLC) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA). A Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a special computer device used for industrial control systems. They are used in many industries such as oil refineries, manufacturing lines, conveyor systems and so on. Where ever there is a need to control devices the PLC provides a flexible way to "soft wire" the components together. Since the late 1970s, PLCs

Towards Quantifying Programmable Logic Controller Resilience Against Intentional Exploits

Towards Quantifying Programmable Logic Controller Resilience Against Intentional Exploits

propagate via the enterprise network to execute code on field devices that results in physical damage to the underlying system (Falliere, 2011). Stuxnet is a recent example of an intentional malicious cyber event. Stuxnet targeted a specific programmable logic controller (PLC) manufacturer and configuration. PLCs control physical end-devices (e.g., sensors, pumps, motors, valves) at the edge of SCADA systems. Stuxnet functionally alters the PLC’s parameters such that specific drive motors were driven beyond nominal specifications (Falliere, 2011). Additionally, Stuxnet masks modification of the PLCs functions from the SCADA system operator. Stuxnet demonstrates a novel threat to SCADA security since it both altered physical parameters to the system and concealed the modifications.

Development of a Programmable Logic Controller Training Unit for Engineering Technology Curriculum

Development of a Programmable Logic Controller Training Unit for Engineering Technology Curriculum

The second lab continues by interfacing the pushbuttons from the upper terminal block to the PLC, followed by interfacing the general purpose relays and motor starter first to the upper terminal block, then to the output module of the PLC. This is intended to reinforce the NFPA and workmanship standards expected in the class. Subsequently, the students are provided a short procedure for establishing communications with the PLC for the first time. Once the communications are established, the students work with the Studio 5000® environment for the first time to create a ‘test’ program that configures the input and output modules, creates the initial controller and program tags, and tests the functionality of the hardware. It is left to the students to recognize that this program can be used as a template, thereby eliminating the need to define the I/O configuration and create the tags each time a new program is created.

Problem based learning approach in programmable logic controller

Problem based learning approach in programmable logic controller

A PLC is a solid-state control system with a user programmable memory, used to read input conditions and set output conditions to control machines or processes such as motors, robots, vision systems, and conveyors which are widely used in manufacturing to coordinate a variety of complex tasks, such as security monitoring, energy consumption management, and control of machines and automatic production lines. PLCs are programmed using ladder logic to develop ladder diagrams as well as hardware and control- related commands (known as instructions). Bit-level instructions for example, are used to examine inputs or energize outputs at specific PLC interface bit addresses. Timer instructions are used to control the timing of events in a process, such as delaying motors from starting at the same time or opening a valve for a given time. Counter instructions turn outputs on or off after a certain number of input transitions. This paper focuses primarily on the development of lessons based on projects.

Dynamic Honeypot Configuration for Programmable Logic Controller Emulation

Dynamic Honeypot Configuration for Programmable Logic Controller Emulation

Provided the difficulty of securing ICS, traditional defense mechanisms have proven rather ineffective. A common defense paradigm is the separation of corporate IT net- works from ICS networks using a demilitarized zone as shown in Figure 3 [1, 5]. Critical control systems are cordoned off by firewalls in order to prevent potentially harmful traffic from entering the ICS space. Unfortunately, as time has shown, this defense fails to address the real problem: ICS systems are designed to trust inputs. Early control networks relied on local access and all commands were considered trust- worthy. Today, there must be a paradigm shift toward “resilient control systems” [32]. Resiliency in ICS requires more than just a proper network configuration. The state of the system must be monitored at all times in conjunction with mechanisms to maintain a safe state close to operational normalcy even in the event of malicious or unexpected disturbances [32]. This approach is discussed by Carcano et al. as an extension of an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) for industrial networks [7]. The idea is to collect data of normal operations and so called critical states before creating metrics to accurately distinguish between the two. During operation, the IDS can then monitor the state of the system rather than simply inspect traffic for signatures. This method allows the IDS to determine when a system is approaching a critical state and take protective measures before damage is done.

Automatic Fluid Level Control Using Programmable Logic Controller

Automatic Fluid Level Control Using Programmable Logic Controller

Relays- This relay allows power to switch on and off without a mechanical switch. It is common to use relay to make simple logical control decisions. The development of low cost computer has brought the most recent revolution. At the outset of industrial revolution, especially during sixties and seventies, relays were used to operate automated machines, and these were interconnected using wires inside the control panel. In some cases a control panel covered an entire wall. To discover an error in the system much time was needed especially with more complex process control systems. On top of everything, a lifetime of relay contacts was limited, so some relays had to be replaced. If replacement was required, machine had to be stopped and production too. Also, it could happen that there was not enough room for necessary changes. Control panel was used only for one particular process, and it wasn’t easy to adapt to the requirements of a new system. As far as maintenance, electricians had to be very skill full in finding errors. In short, conventional control panels proved to be very inflexible. As explained above manual or conventional control has some draw backs due to this case we forced to make automatic control system using PLC.

Automatic Packing Machine &Material Handling Using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)

Automatic Packing Machine &Material Handling Using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)

A programmable logic controller is a digital computer used for automation of typical industrial electro-mechanical processes such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or light fixtures. PLCs are used in many machines in industries. PLCs are designed for multiple arrangements of digital and analog inputs and outputs, extended temperature ranges, immunity to electrical noise and resistance to vibration and impact. Programs to control machine operation are typically stored in battery-backed-up or non-volatile memory. A PLC is an example of a “hard” real-time system since output results must be produced in response to input conditions within a limited time, otherwise unintended operation will result. Early PLCs were designed to replace relay logic systems. These PLCs were programmed in ladder logic which strongly resembles a schematic diagram of relay logic. This program notation was chosen to reduce training demands for the existing technicians. Other early PLCs used a form of instruction list programming, based on a stack based logic solver. Modern PLCs can be programmed in a variety of ways, from the relay-derived ladder logic to programming languages such as specially adapted dialects of BASIC and C.

Design and Implement of a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) for Classical Control Laboratory

PLC inputs must convert a variety of logic levels to the 5VDC logic levels used on the data bus. This can be done with circuits similar to those shown in Figure 2. Basically the circuits condition the input to drive an op- tocoupler. This electrically isolates the external electrical circuitry from the internal circuitry. Other circuit com- ponents are used to guard against excess or reversed vol- tage polarity.
