You are here


RAD’s SAN solutions are in line with recent North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC-CIP) directives to boost your cyber security and compliance levels:

  • Encryption and integrity for all communications outside ESP
  • Application (SCADA) aware firewall
  • Record/monitor all device connections in substations

ESP Protection

  • Strategically located to securely manage all electronic access to the substation’s ESP, and to protect the cyber assets within it from external and internal attacks:
    • Device connection control (DCC) using IEEE 802.1x Network Access Control to ensure authenticated and authorized internal substation connections
    • SCADA-aware security layer, including firewall, intrusion prevention, anomaly detection, and more
    • IEEE 802.1AE (MACsec) and IPsec encryption and data integrity verification to prevent sourcespoofing, session hijacking, Man in the Middle and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks
  • Boost compliance level with NERC-CIP requirements for bulk electric systems (BES) protection
  • Layered security approach addresses all vulnerability points including integrity, confidentiality (encryption), authentication, authorization, and auditing
  • Access control, user authentication and privilegelevel associations for local and remote access using Secure Shell (SSH), TACACS or RADIUS
