This report summarizes the finding of study PSTP 02-0347eSec Study on cyber Security and Threat Evaluation in SCADA Systems. The primary objective of the study was to support the e-Security Community of Practice by leading a study to fill the knowledge gap concerning the current cyber-threat environment affecting SCADA systems. This work is intended to enhance the resilience of Canada's critical infrastructure by providing direction to research and development programs and recommending best security practices. This primary objective is supported by the following complementary objectives: 1) To establish trusted relationships with private sector critical infrastructure SCADA operators; 2) To enable the production of research reports on the current cyber-threat environment to SCADA systems; 3) To contribute to the development of a cyber-threat management system for continued situational awareness; and 4) To contribute to the development of best practices for the security of SCADA systems. The report is divided into five parts: 1) Task 1 Milestone “Assess State of the Art for SCADA Security”. 2) Task 2 Milestone “Development of a Cyber Threat and Vulnerability Guideline”. 3) Task 3 Milestone “Define the Scope and Capabilities of a Cyber-Threat and Vulnerability Management System”. 4) Task 4 Milestone “Produce a Best Practices Security Manual or Guide”. 5) Final conclusions, strategic advisory note, capabilities road map, study fact sheet, and quad chart.
