The Cybersecurity Application, "ERP-CBM", has been designed by edibon to allow the students, teachers and researchers to understand how substations are protected against cyber attacks.
Power engineers demand the most reliable services for their control and protection systems. Settings cannot be disturbed, cables cannot be switched, and significant latency cannot be tolerated. Engineers must have full control of their critical systems and maintain full access
control to their equipment 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Cybersecurity must protect these assets and enable power engineers to accomplish their work efficiently.
The ERP-CBM has been designed to protect power protections relays network from malicious traffic with an integrated firewall and strong authentication access control.
Protects meters, protective relays, programmable logic controllers (PLC), remote terminals unit (RTUs), and computers, are communicated through EIA-232, also known as RS-232 (standard for serial communication transmission of data).
The ERP-CBM allows the students to study how prevent unauthorized access, control, monitoring, and malicious attacks by authenticating and optionally encrypting all data along the communications path.
