 Iiot networks: end-to-end security &supervision

What is ARGOS?

  • ARGOS is a demonstration platform that highlights security problems in industrial systems and existing security tests. This platform provides an industrial network composed of a PLC (Programmable logic controller) and two emulated industrial systems. It helps carry out different attack scenarios involving Modbus RTU protocols and presentation of a security solution for industrial networks along with its deployment in a device network. The ARGOS solution has been developed during the "IIoT security" project undertaken within the scope of IRT Nanoelec's PULSE program.

Applications: 

  • Security of industrial networks, factories and health systems
  • Digital twin of an electrical network: security deployment in an industrial or IoT network
  • Critical systems and predictive maintenance
  • Intelligent city/transport, drone fleets, energy generation and distribution, and home automation.

What's new:

ARGOS is a 3-in-1 solution that includes:

  • A secure proxy for:

  1. Securing existing industrial networks initially based on insecure communication protocols
  2. Securing the system right from its design
  3. Limiting attacks through denial of service
  4. Detecting attacks in real time.

  • A supervision solution, with end-to-end secure communication protocol, that simplifies deployment of a configuration in an IIOT network via a mobile phone.

  • “Hardware in the loop” architecture integrating simulation of industrial processes and specific attacks.

Next step:

CEA-Leti teams are continuing their research work to:

  • Improve ARGOS security integrating state-of-the-art countermeasures to ensure in-depth defense
  • Secure deployment and management of keys throughout the system life cycle via a supervision interface and integration of post-quantic cryptography schemes for the communication protocol.
