Securing OT traffic is a fundamental component of improving OT security. There is no question that OT systems need to be hardened against cyber adversaries. The threat is real and incident rates are increasing in number and severity. This presentation explains how a proposed authentication and authorization architecture secures industrial control systems by blending TLS to secure existing OT protocols, extending X.509 digital certificates with Industrial Certification Authority.
This presentation will cover the key challenges that need to be overcome in order to introduce a digital certificate-based industrial authentication authorization concept, as well as a proposal for a secure Modbus protocol.
