Hazard assessment of the threat of Covent in industrial LonWorks networks neuron chip


I. I. Bezukladnikov – Senior Lecturer, Perm National Research Polytechnic University
E. L. Kon – Ph.D. (Eng.), Professor, Perm National Research Polytechnic University

This paper proposes a new method for assessing the risk posed by one of the most dangerous threats to the information security of industrial systems - covert channels. It shows the inapplicability of use for this purpose, known approaches based on the use of single-performance characteristics of a covert channel. Article proposes an approach to assess that by analyzing several criteria – performance, resource constraints and attack scenario. The approaches for assessing these criteria, as well as an example of using the proposed method for assessing the risk of a real LonWorks-infrastructure are shown.
