Abstract

The SCADA system connectivity with several open networks using internet facility brought SCADA platform more vulnerable from attacks/threads. Therefore, the detail security review has been conducted, to find the potential security issues which are residing and warming the SCADA communication and also existing potential security solutions that are used to protect the SCADA communication. However, Security deployments are the future tread of this study. This security review is divided into four main sections: (1) Security Analysis for SCADA System, (2) SCADA Security using Cryptography Solution, (3) Key Management and Distribution Protocols for SCADA System and (4) SCADA Communication using Security Patterns. In this study; the SCADA security review has been conducted and generic security solution using cryptography will implement in future.
