We are pleased to announce the first release of Digital Bond’s Portaledge project. Just in case loyal blog readers have forgotten, Portaledge is a U.S. Department of Energy funded project where control system Historians are used to aggregate and correlate security events to detect attacks.
We selected the OSIsoft PI server as our historian platform because OSIsoft was a very supportive partner in the project and because it has a massive market penetration in the US Energy Sector. So this initial release package is a set of files that allow the PI server to aggregate Availability Events and to alert when an Event is recognized.

The Availability Event Class includes the following Events:
- Computer System Availability Event
- Network Device Availability Event
- Field Device Availability Event
- Performance Degradation Events – Multiple Events Here for Computers, Field Devices and Network Devices
- Simple Network Availability Event
The Availability Event Class is the first of eight planned Event Classes. Details on the Event, Event Class, Event Taxonomy is available on the SCADApedia.
We would really like feedback on this initial release, so send all questions and comments to email@example.com. We will be blogging on various aspects of the release over the next week.
Thanks again to US Department of Energy for funding this effort and OSIsoft for supporting it with donated products and staff time.
