3rd Public ATENA Workshop
Project ATENA (Advanced Tools to assEss and mitigate the criticality of ICT compoNents and their dependencies over Critical InfrAstructures)
How does it work?
The ATENA platform is designed to continuously suggest actions on operational (OT) and information (IT) networks, but executes actions under the operators’ supervision - this means that the default operation mode is based on a human-in-the loop paradigm by default, unless configured otherwise. Installation of the ATENA platform leaves the OT network unchanged and integrates seamlessly into existing IT networks, preserving existing CI investments. In addition, ATENA has been defined in a modular way to adapt to user environments and needs.
Design and development of the ATENA platform is driven by the security needs of the energy and water sectors. Professional end users will validate project results by applying ATENA tools in real-life business-oriented use cases for electricity, gas and water distribution. However, due to its modular design and the use of standard interaction technologies, most of ATENA’s methodologies and tools may be easily adapted to other domains.
During the workshop, the partners of the consortium will present the results of their research and will perform some demonstration of tools, in particular regarding:
- The detection capabilities provided by the IADS (Intrusion and Anomaly Detection System), a smart and distributed detection system.
- The simulation tools for Electrical, Gaz and Water domains.
- The risk analysis and security protection enhancement methodologies and tools.
- The holistic risk prediction tool for multi-layers and distributed infrastructure.
- The strategy and technological components to improve the mitigation of risk in a distributed infrastructure.
- The hybrid test-bed including virtual and real components of gas and electrical infrastructure.
The workshop will also be an opportunity to learn about the latest advances in critical infrastructure cybersecurity and to discuss the issues and risks generated by the new technologies that are developing within the Smart Grid. For those aims, experts in these domains as Dr. Kursawe (more information here) will be present to give a clear overwatch on the upcoming technology and challenge for the future.
