Abstract

Critical infrastructures can be better protected against challenges to their data communications. In this paper, we present a set of challenges and their characteristics by reviewing reported incidents. Using domain specific attributes we discuss how these could be mitigated. Our significant contributions are to argue for the introduction of the latest programmable networking approaches in critical infrastructure networks, present our proposed modular architecture with configurable monitoring and security and show results from the simulation of a network challenge which highlights the benefits of our approach.
