Live Demo: Remote Attack That Can Permanently Disable a Fully Air-gapped System
Industrial control systems that claim to be fully air-gapped often aren't. In particular, elements of the ICS take electrical power from a local network, or UPS. Power supply engineers who work on power disturbances can demonstrate certain types of events -- as simple as turning the power off and on in a particular pattern -- that can permanently disable typical off-the-shelf power supplies. A technical discussion of this attack vector, with a follow-on live demonstration, will be provided.
