Day 2


4. Intro: From SCADA to IoT. Infrastructure for device connectivity

Terminology: ICS, SCADA, DCS, PLC – examples; how old (current?) topologies looked like

The new age: B2B equipment & systems vs. service delivery platforms

Usual scenarios:

  • Read large amounts of data in real-time; store it locally
  • Send analytics data to backend =>
  • Analyze data => identify trends =>
  • Performance optimizations
  • Predict behaviour based on what happened in the past
  • Alerts & actions
  • High performance queries in-memory
  • High-performance distributed queries
The infrastructure for device connectivity: from sensor to the cloud

  • Overlay networks
  • Messaging systems & device discovery
  • Main descriptive formats (JSON, XML)
  • Main protocols: MQTT, AMQP

Day 3

Example: migrating Rail & transport systems to IoT

Gather requirements from customer (this should be interactive)

  • Lineside communications, levels crossing, fibre-optic network, MPLS, …
  • Services: timetable, railway crossing control, etc
  • Appliances for distributed data analytics

5. Security at message systems level (message transportation)

How the message should not look like

Intrusion prevention

Intrusion detection

AMQP Security layer

6. General rules for less vulnerable C++ code (Security at implementation level)

Buffer overflows

C-centric issues (brief): unsafe string operations, pointer arithmetic & other memory management issues, integer problems

C++-centric issues

  • Choosing your compiler
  • Class behavior
  • State inconsistencies
  • Constructor / destructor implementation
  • Operator overloading

Day 4

  • Auditing classes (3-step process)
  • Auditing constructors, destructors
  • Auditing member functions
  • Operating with variable-length arrays
  • Auditing for improper delete
  • Exception handling done right
  • C++ exceptions, system exceptions, interactions
  • Stack issues: stack layout, guard pages, dynamic stack resizing
  • Exploiting stack overflow exceptions
  • Some API examples
  • Auditing for stack overflow



Participants shouls have IoT or deep security knowledge.
