A silver bullet for the attacker. A study into the security of hardware license tokens
In the past years, the problem of vulnerabilities in industrial automation systems has been becoming increasingly important. The fact that industrial control systems have been developing in parallel with IT systems, relatively independently and often without regard for modern secure coding practices is probably the main source of ICS security problems.

MLAD: Machine Learning for Anomaly Detection
Modern industrial control systems (ICS) are cyber-physical systems that include IT infrastructure and operational technologies or OT infrastructure. Attacks on OT pose the greatest danger and are very difficult to detect. The MLAD (Machine Learning for Anomaly Detection) technology is designed to protect OT.

The Relevance of WPA2 Vulnerabilities and KRACK Attacks to Industrial Systems
Critical vulnerabilities that have recently been identified in the WPA2 protocol enable threat actors to carry out Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks and force devices connected to the network to reinstall encryption keys that protect traffic. These vulnerabilities can be used, among other things, to implement attacks on industrial automation systems.
