ICS Security

The first industrial revolution was powered by steam engines, the second by electricity, and the third by computers. The next industrial revolution is projected to happen through connectivity. In that, machines are expected to grow smarter to create smart cities comprising of smart grids that intelligently supply only the required electricity from power plants to homes, smart vehicles that avoid road congestion by intelligently planning the routes along with autonomous capability. How are we going to assure resiliency and reliability in such systems so as to protect human life, and finances? Logically speaking, what are the types and the moving parts of such Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications? In order to secure these systems, we first need to understand them and answer questions such as these.
