NIST Publishes Guide to ICS Security

There is a new document out that address security for industrial control systems. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published their “Guide to Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security”. After a really quick ten-minute review of this lengthy (155 pages) document this morning, it looks like a valuable contribution to the discussion about ICS security issues.

As time permits I will do a more detailed review of the Guide and provide more information about its contents here in this blog. In the meantime, I would certainly recommend that anyone with responsibilities for ICS security should download a copy of this document.

Hi PJ,

The final public draft of this document is almost three years old. I've done a quick compare in Adobe Reader and it seems there were primarily editorial changes but few (if any) substantial conceptual / technical changes.

After a review, would you agree with that assessment? If so, it's nice that the doc finally has reached official approval and publication, but it provides littel news over the draft as it was used for almost three years.
