|Reverse engineering of PLC communication: Implications cyber forensics and security (Dr. Frank Breitinger)
|On Tuesday, June 21, 2017 at 10 am there will be a research talk given by Dr. Frank Breitinger (University of New Haven, USA) at lab C304. |
Abstract: Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are common components
implemented across many industries such as manufacturing, water
management, travel, aerospace and hospitals to name a few. This
presentation shows our findings from reverse engineering the GE-SRTP
network protocol using a GE Fanuc Series 90-30 PLC and provide two major
contributions: We first describe the Service Request Transport protocol
(GE-SRTP) which was invented by General Electric (GE) and is used by
many of their Ethernet connected controllers. Second, based on our
understanding of the protocol, we implemented a software application
that allows direct network-based communication with the PLC (no
intermediate server is needed). While the tool's forensic mode is
harmless and only allows for reading registers, we discovered that one
can manipulate / write to the registers in its default configuration,
e.g., turn off the PLC, or manipulate the items / processes it controls.
