Reconnaissance is a first and very important step in planning a cyber attack. Nowadays, adversaries can gather information about Industrial Control Systems in many ways, and one of them is using Open Source Intelligence. Using a relatively easy method, anyone can map the whole exposed ICS infrastructure of any country. Internet-connected ICS devices pose a risk due to vulnerabilities or misconfigurations and are the easiest target for different groups.This research shows the state and statistics of around 26,000 exposed ICS devices in the USA, including detailed information about them - open ports, vulnerabilities, organizations or geolocation. In addition, it proves that some of the devices can be geolocated to specific buildings and companies, which might affect critical infrastructure in a variety of sectors. Moreover, methods of gathering open source data and identifying particular ICS devices will be presented. Industrial control systems are targeted by foreign intelligence services mostly for espionage and potential cyber attacks resulting in disruption of important services for a city or even a country. It’s worth knowing adversaries’ weak points and it might help different Computer Emergency Readiness Teams around the world.
