» Protection against cyber attacks is a crucial factor for each business model in solar industry. All PV plant stakeholder have to rely on a secure digital landscape but also have to play their part not to endanger it. «

POTENTIAL RISK OF A CYBER ATTACK

  • Critical penalties
  • Loss of grid connection approval
  • Loss of feed-in tariff
  • Loss of production
  • Extreme cases could result in loss of life
  • Exposure of commercially sensitive data
  • Critical environmental impact
  • Damaging brand, reputation loss

SysLog

The system log contains a record of the operating system events that indicates how the system processes and drivers were loaded. By reviewing the data contained in the log, an administrator or user troubleshooting the system can identify the cause of a problem or whether the system processes are loading successfully.

User Access Management

Requires not only a password and username but also a token code from the user (multi-factor-authentification). To limit the access, only registered users will be able to access the plant. All user accounts need to be registered as single person, group accounts are not allowed. Access permissions are kept as strict as possible, so that the user will only have access to the requested system and according prerequisites.

VLANS

Logical division of a computer network. It enables network administrators to divide their networks according to the functional and security requirements of their systems despite being connected to the same physical network.

Intrusion detection system

Display all network assets and any changes in their connectivity based on self-learning of the SCADA network through passive scanning of all data trans-
actions. Detection of abnormal activity such as changes in the sequence of the SCADA process, abnormal memory access and firmware changes.

Hardening

Is usually the process of securing a system by reducing its surface of vulnerability, which is larger when a system performs more functions; in principle a single-function system is more secure than a multipurpose one.

VPN

End-to-end IPsec VPN (Virtual Private Network) for secure communications between the control center and the photovoltaic field.

NAC

Network access control is a security solution that enforces policy on devices that access networks to increase network visibility and reduce risk.
