报告摘要:In industrial processes, the security of the control system has always been a crucial issue. A PLC worm is a malicious program that can replicate and spread itself in programmable logic controllers (PLC) in an industrial control system. PLC worms can be generated that can live and run only in PLCs, without requiring any computers (PC) to proliferate. The impact of PLC worms to the impacted system could be devastating. When a PLC worm is combined, as a plus-in, with a malicious computer software such as BlackEnergy, a PLC-PC worm is formed, which will live and run on the two-layered, PLC-PC coupled network. In this paper, for the first time, we propose a propagation model for PLC-PC worms, with defensive programs (i.e. isolation/immunization) running on the network. We show that with isolation/immunization, both disease-free equilibrium and with-disease equilibrium of the network can be reached, at which the worms stop spreading. Numerical experiments have been performed to justify the analytical results. The numerical experiments also show the effectiveness of defensive measures in preventing PLC-PC worms from spreading.
