At the Spring 2010 meeting of DHS’s ICSJWG, TVA, Alstom Grid (AREVA), Digital Bond, CIS and NERC presented a case study on how working together on Bandolier has helped Alstom Grid provide TVA with a SCADA system in the optimal security configuration. Since we just released the new Alstom Grid Bandolier Security Audit Files, I thought loyal blog readers might be interested in seeing how they are used.

Bandolier is making a difference in that new SCADA and DCS are being deployed and upgraded in their optimal security configuration. The OS is hardened, web servers and databases are configured securely, and the SCADA and DCS application security settings are the best they can be. The ICS vendor signs off that their system will run properly with these security settings and is in fact distributing Bandolier Security Audit Files through their support channels.
