Evaluating Or Testing Utility SCADA Security?

galaxy Re:From what I understand (227 comments)

Hear hear.

Any security engineer / technical security auditor worth his salt will a) point that out to you in a meeting b) prove it to you through pentesting if needed.

SCADA systems in general are on the more .. interesting side from a security testing point of view, as one has to be _pretty_ careful about any side-effects caused by the testing. Been there, done that, haven't (yet) caused any major disasters.. ;)

Linux Device Drivers, 2nd ed. Released Under GNU FDL

galaxy Re:A Great Book (the 1st edition) (77 comments)

Yeah, even though the book is freely available, I for one like the feel (and weight ;) of a good brick of a book in my hands / on my lap / desk when I am doing some research.
The online edition is extremely good for browsing before you buy, and also acts as a wonderful reference (can't do regexp searches in printed books, too bad :)
