On the front line against the next Stuxnet

Security 0

angry tapir writes "People who run industrial systems have traditionally cared about one thing above all others: They want their machines to run without interruption, and nothing — not even an important security patch or operating system update — can get in the way. However, last year's Stuxnet worm changed everything, showing that these types of machines can be attacked, and even brought down with a cyberattack. That's put the U.S. Department of Homeland Security-funded Idaho National Laboratory security programs in the spotlight, because they form the backbone of the US government's plan to secure industrial systems. Journalist Robert McMillan toured the security facility where people are preparing for the next Stuxnet."
