Learn how to defend your ICS in practice, from lab setup and intel gathering to working with SCADA Key FeaturesBecome well-versed with offensive ways of defending your industrial control systemsLearn about industrial network protocols, threat hunting, Active Directory compromises, SQL injection, and much moreBuild offensive and defensive skills to combat industrial cyber threatsBook Description The industrial cybersecurity domain has grown significantly in recent years. To completely secure critical infrastructure, red teams must be employed to continuously test and exploit the security integrity of a company's people, processes, and products. This is a unique pentesting book, which takes a different approach by helping you gain hands-on experience with equipment that you'll come across in the field. This will enable you to understand how industrial equipment interacts and operates within an operational environment. You'll start by getting to grips with the basics of industrial processes, and then see how to create and break the process, along with gathering open-source intel to create a threat landscape for your potential customer. As you advance, you'll find out how to install and utilize offensive techniques used by professional hackers. Throughout the book, you'll explore industrial equipment, port and service discovery, pivoting, and much more, before finally launching attacks against systems in an industrial network. By the end of this penetration testing book, you'll not only understand how to analyze and navigate the intricacies of an industrial control system (ICS), but you'll also have developed essential offensive and defensive skills to proactively protect industrial networks from modern cyberattacks. What you will learnSet up a starter-kit ICS lab with both physical and virtual equipmentPerform open source intel-gathering pre-engagement to help map your attack landscapeGet to grips with the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for penetration testing on industrial equipmentUnderstand the principles of traffic spanning and the importance of listening to customer networksGain fundamental knowledge of ICS communicationConnect physical operational technology to engineering workstations and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) softwareGet hands-on with directory scanning tools to map web-based SCADA solutionsWho this book is for If you are an ethical hacker, penetration tester, automation engineer, or IT security professional looking to maintain and secure industrial networks from adversaries, this book is for you. A basic understanding of cybersecurity and recent cyber events will help you get the most out of this book.
