PRUEBAS DE PENETRACIÓN A INVERSOR INTELIGENTE (INTELLIGENT INVERSOR PENETRATION TEST)

Maximiliano Valencia Moctezuma, Sandra Verónica Moreno Tapia

Resumen


Los sistemas SCADA eran considerados como seguros debido a que se encontraban aislados del exterior. Actualmente, estos sistemas operan conectados al exterior y utilizan protocolos de comunicación abierta, estandarizada y con pocas o nulas medidas de seguridad. Para poder aumentar la integración de sistemas de energía renovables y tener un manejo eficiente de la energía se planea hacer uso de los sistemas SCADA. Las vulnerabilidades de los sistemas SCADA junto con las de los dispositivos conectados a la red local del usuario representan un riesgo a la red eléctrica. En este trabajo se presentan pruebas de penetración en un ambiente controlado a un inversor inteligente bajo los mismos ataques que se utilizan en los sistemas de Tecnologías de la Información.

Palabra(s) Clave: DER, Pruebas de penetración, SCADA.

 

Abstract

SCADA systems were considered safe because they were isolated from the outside. Currently, these systems operate connected to the exterior and use open, standardized communication protocols with little or no security measures. To increase the integration of renewable energy systems and have an efficient management of energy, it is planned to make use of SCADA systems. The vulnerabilities of the SCADA systems together with those of the devices connected to the user's local network represent a risk to the electricity network. In this paper we present penetration tests in a controlled environment to an intelligent inverter under the same attacks that are used in conventional information systems.

Keywords: DER, Penetration testing, SCADA.
