Security of seismic sensor grid probed
Thousands of seismic sensors monitor the geological activity vulnerable to cyber attacks, research suggests.
Were detailed security controls bad
about the way in which sensor data is transmitted
in a presentation at the conference that the pirates Dave.
The researchers found ways to cheat
and overload sensing devices so would monitoring systems to get inaccurate readings to a large extent.
Results have been reported
to the emergency computer the United States,
which oversees the national infrastructure.
Nanometrics, a company that makes the sensor system,
which has been discussed by the disputed findings of the researchers.
“We have not seen any research before in this area,” said Bertin Bonilla,
security expert based in Costa Rica, who,
with his colleague James neighbor, carried out this work.
Bonilla said a network of sensors of light came through
the various projects that have tried to find a set of smart devices connected to the net to create a search engine for the Internet of Things.
Mr. Bonilla stood out because of the hardware distinctive imprint of data surrendered to scan software because of its location.
“These devices are located in harsh environments
such as the middle of the ocean and active volcanoes around,” he said.
Further checking revealed that it was easy to connect sensors, each of which cost $ 30,000 (£ 23,000), and to see the data they are gathering and transmission.
