Abstract

In the field of OT, most of the network architectures operated in the way of isolation from internal and external networks. Only firewalls are installed on the external network without any protection measures for the internal network. In this paper, we leverage a Software-defined network (SDN) with an industrial control system (ICS), so controllers can manage the equipment and keep track of each switch and its connection with the programmable logic controller (PLC) in the ICS. Additionally, only the critical flows can be allowed by adding flow entries. So the transmission between the PLC and Human Machine Interface (HMI) can be protected. The transmission quality of the ICS and its availability can be improved.
