SCADA/PLC Exploitation and Disclosure presented at HOPE 9

by Tiffany Rad, Teague Newman, And Guests,

Summary : Last year, a few groups of independent security researchers disclosed significant vulnerabilities in SCADA systems and PLCs. This panel brings together these security researchers to discuss their findings, initial goals for doing the research, disclosure processes, and difficulties and surprises encountered. These researchers, independently and without corporate or nation state funding, decimated the popular belief that security via obscurity works to protect critical infrastructure.
