SCADA refers to a large-scale, distributed measurement (and control) system. The supervisory control system is placed on top of a real time control system to control an external process. The Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition system (SCADA) monitor and control real-time systems. SCADA systems are the backbone of the critical infrastructure, and any compromise in their security can have grave consequences. Therefore, there is a need to have a SCADA testbed for checking vulnerabilities and validating security solutions. In this paper, the authors develop such a SCADA testbed.
