YASIR: A Low-Latency, High-Integrity Security Retrofit for Legacy SCADA Systems
Patrick P. Tsang, Sean W. Smith
Dartmouth TR2007-603

Abstract: We construct a bump-in-the-wire (BITW) solution that retrofits security into time-critical communications over bandwidth-limited serial links between devices in Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Previous BITW solutions fail to provide the necessary security within timing constraints; the previous solution that does provide the necessary security is not BITW. At a comparable hardware cost, our BITW solution provides sufficient security, and yet incurs minimal end-to-end communication latency. A microcontroller prototype of our solution is under development.
