The Bristol Cyber Security Group has a state-of-the-art, large scale testbed, providing a realistic environment for our research into cyber-physical systems security. It has been built from the ground up, based on extensive past experience of building ICS security testbeds and input from industry partners.
The testbed infrastructure includes:
Multiple physical and virtual processes
Including a water treatment plant, model factory and building management system, each within distinct, centrally managed field sites.
Physical industrial control hardware
Sourced from a number of vendors including the latest devices with the newest protocols.
Fully-realised experimental network environment
Covering both the IT and OT network environments, with comprehensive data capture abilities.
Training and prototyping environment
Comprehensive fully simulated environments and small scale physical testbeds.
ICS training boxes
Designed and built in-house.
Remote field site with physical process
Mobile and self-contained.
Allowing for granular integration of remote testbed/control structures to enable large scale and diverse experimentation.
Our own workshop
Including 3D-print capabilities for rapid prototyping.
Access to the electrical engineering workshop team
For design and building of testbed infrastructure.
