    "Team" by Newtown grafitti via Flickr. CC BY 2.0.Overview

    Student teams c ontinue to build a description of the operating environment for their sector-based organization, describing how they would use vulnerability scanning and/or penetration testing to evaluate threat potentials.

     

    Team Activity Objectives

    • Identify vulnerability assessment techniques and tools, such as CSET, Nessus, and other assessment tools.
    • Explain the differences between vulnerability scanning and penetration testing.

     

     

    Having identified threats that would be likely to impact your sector-based organization in the Module 5 Team Activity, consider how you would use vulnerability scanning and/or penetration testing to evaluate additional threat potentials. What tools would you use, and how could they impact the availability of a real-time control and/or SCADA system?

    Look for passive penetration tools and tests that will not take the control and/or SCADA systems down.

     

    Assignment Options

    Option 1: Write a 2-page abstract summarizing your team’s rationale for using vulnerability scanning and/or penetration testing. What tools would your team use, and how could these decisions impact the availability of a real-time control and/or SCADA system?

    Option 2: Prepare 2–3 presentation slides summarizing your team’s rationale for using vulnerability scanning and/or penetration testing. What tools would your team use, and how could these decisions impact the availability of a real-time control and/or SCADA system?
