A Data Classification and Analysis System for the Identification of Cyber Security Events in a Condenser and Condensate HIL System

Not scheduled
Poster CC: Information and computer security considerations for nuclear security


Dr JAE-GU SONG (Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute)


KAERI has built a condenser and condensate HIL system as a part of IAEA CRP J02008 “Enhancing computer security incident analysis and response planning at nuclear facilities.” The condenser and condensate system, which is a simple version of physical feed-water condenser system in nuclear power plants, is integrated with a hypothetical pressurized water reactor simulator “ASHERAH”, which is also developed by other parties in the IAEA CRP. This integrated system is designed and developed for computer security R&Ds and training activities to provide how security technologies and processes can enhance computer security incident response.
In this study, a data classification and analysis system has also been developed and added to the condenser and Condensate HIL system for the collection and analyses of the information generated within the HIL system being operated in conjunction with the ASHERAH simulator. The data classification and analysis system can gather all raw input and output data and store at different resolutions for a security event analysis. Through the analysis of events and the selection of candidate parameters, criteria on the classification of information to identify security events can be defined.
At the same time, the display in the data classification and analysis system is designed with easy-view dashboards for tracking the changes in control and monitoring data. Trend displays on dashboards are used to locate and identify possible symptom of cyber events in the HIL system. This study will continue to be developed and optimized for using IAEA International Training Course in collaboration with IAEA CRP J02008 participants.
