The Space and Missile System Center (SMC) is looking for technologies and technical applications that support the testing of space Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems and their corresponding Operational Technology (OT) networks while using data analytics to identify and/or predict defects and trends. Challenges to providing this capability include combining OT networks with Information Technology (IT) networks to provide enterprise-managed control and the lack of support for communication protocols used by CPS/SCADA endpoints when discovering devices, monitoring traffic, and enforcing identity-based security protocols. In response this effort proposes to architect a customized Segmented CPS/SCADA Test Network (SCSTN) architecture and solution that provides a converged, yet segmented network that allows network communication between engineering test areas, laboratory spaces and ranges; scans for, discovers, and interrogates CPS/SCADA endpoint devices communicating over a wide variety of protocols used by space vehicles and their subsystems; profiles traffic workflows on OT networks while providing analytics and alerts associated with malicious behaviors; provides a means to quarantine potentially vulnerable areas of the OT network ; and correlates the CPS/SCADA device data and OT network test reports with commercial threat intelligence information provided through Cisco Talos.
