Proposal Number: 04111216
Proposal Title: CKM-based Management System for SCADA/DCS operations
Topic Number: H-SB04.1-008
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Advanced Secure Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Related Distributed Control Systems
Organization: TecSec
Address: 1953 Gallows Road
Suite 220, VA 22182-4003  
Abstract: TecSec's CKM technology and tool kit will be used to develop an effective, easy to use, Secure Cryptographic Management System (SCMS) to protect SCADA systems/network. The management scheme will be designed to meet all unique requirements for SCADA/DCS operations, and provide a seamless migration of future protection schemes. The SCMS facilitates an RBAC methodology that can be set up to reflect the organizational units operating rules and procedures of an end user, and extends seamlessly the security procedures for SCADA/DCS operations. CKM technology systemizes key creation, implementing dual control or split knowledge by using key components to construct the final working key. This working key may be used in several ways including a session key, for a store-and-forward application such as e-mail, and for file encryption applications such as archiving, or protecting file information until accessed by a user.
