(54) Title (FR): SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR LA SÉCURITÉ D'UN SYSTÈME DE COMMANDE

(57) Abstract:
(EN): A resilient security agent determines a cyber and/or physical health of a control system by, inter alia, communicating cyber-physical key data through cyber-physical control paths of the system, and determining error introduced by the communication. The resilient security agent may be further configured to verify the integrity of acquired cyber-physical state information. The cyber health of the control system may be evaluated by comparing the acquired cyber state information to one or more cyber state profiles. The physical health of the control system may be evaluated by comparing the acquired physical state information to one or more physical state profiles.
(FR): L'invention concerne un agent de sécurité résilient qui détermine la cybersanté et/ou la santé physique d'un système de commande, entre autres, par la communication de cyberdonnées et de données physiques clés par l'intermédiaire de cybervoies ou de voies physiques de commande du système, et par la détermination d'une erreur introduite par la communication. L'agent de sécurité résilient peut en outre être conçu pour vérifier l'intégrité des informations de cyberétat et d'état physique acquises. La cybersanté du système de commande peut être évaluée par comparaison des informations de cyberétat acquises à un ou plusieurs profils de cyberétat. La santé physique du système de commande peut être évaluée par comparaison des informations d'état physique acquises à un ou plusieurs profils d'état physique.
