Abstract

Industrial Control System (ICS) has been designed for critical infrastructure sectors and 90% of these systems are property/owaned and operated by private organizations. Industrial Control System (ICS) were designed to fulfill the basic requirements included system performance and reliability and other basic needs, related with real time transmission, without interlinking with networks (public/private) or/and internet connectivity. In this research, detail review has been conducted which is based on Industrial control system or ICS types and their uses and/or importance within industries or real time industries. The remaining sections highlighted the potential problems or issues which are linked with these systems during communication and detail problem statement has been also conducted and several existing security deployments are reviewed, to find the generic security mechanism that will secure the communication of critical infrastructures.
