Cyber security round-up

GlobalSign’s identity management system. Radiflow detects intruders, Quantum detects gunshots.

GlobalSign and the US National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) have published a step-by-step guide to help energy companies implement identity and access management and achieve secure access and authentication, reducing cybersecurity risk. The guide describes a demonstrator centralized identity and access management (IdAM) platform that provides a comprehensive view of users across IT networks, physical location and operational systems. The draft guide can be downloaded from the NCCoE website.

Radiflow has released Isid, a new intrusion detection system (IDS) for ICS/Scada networks. Radflow CTO Yehonatan Kfir observed ‘ICS networks expose a large attack surface and are vulnerable to hacking. Operators’ ability to detect and react to cyber incidents are poor and this gap between attacker and defender, poses a significant risk.’ Isid software runs both at the control center and at remote sites providing detection of changes in network topology, malware and spotting sensitive Scada commands. Model-based anomaly detection of network traffic is claimed to assure network security ‘so that operators no longer need to be experts.’

Intrusion detection specialist Quantum Technology Sciences has added real-time gunshot detection and classification capability to its Vector series seismic-acoustic technology platform. The concealed solution provides real-time notification of gunshots from up to 500 meters. The classifier is available on the Vector series QM-100 and QS-100 products which also detect intrusion by pedestrians, vehicles and digging.
