Paper Title
Detecting Network Attack Vectors On SCADA Specific Network Operating On Modbus TCP/IP Protocol
  Neel H. Pathak,  Prof. H. B. Patel

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, a part of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are widely used for automation and control in many industry sectors, chemical plants, electric power grids, oil and gas plants etc. Traditionally these (i.e. SCADA) systems were operated in standalone manner, typically housed within the industries, chemical plants etc. However, due to the expansion of business and the need to centrally monitor and control these systems, they are now being connected to a completely alien world, the world of Internet. Naturally, as these systems are now being connected to the internet, they are prone to plethora of attacks prevailing on internet. Much research is being carried out to detect and mitigate the effect of network attacks on SCADA specific networks but, one must also consider the significance of attacks done inside the secured periphery of the controlled systems, called as “insider attacks”. One can imagine the consequences if such critical infrastructure are tempered or illegally gained control of. If someone tries to gain control over some of the Servers or hacks into someone`s system through internet then the loss would be either financial and/or business function. However, when SCADA systems are compromised then the loss would not just be financial and/or business function but also THE LOSS OF LIFE.
