Towards Understanding Man-In-The-Middle Attacks on IEC 60870-5-104 SCADA Networks

Peter Maynard, Kieran McLaughlin, Berthold Haberler

This paper investigates cyber attacks on ICS which rely on IEC 60870-5-104 for telecontrol communications. The main focus of the paper is on man-in-the-middle attacks, covering modification and injection of commands, it also details capture and replay attacks. An initial set of attacks are preformed on a local software simulated laboratory. Final experiments and validation of a man-in-the-middle attack are performed in a comprehensive testbed environment in conjunction with an electricity distribution operator.
