Detect and discover cybersecurity issues on GSM-R railway telecoms and ETCS signalling systems.
Today’s railways face several challenges detecting and managing OT cybersecurity.
The railway sector is increasingly vulnerable to cyber-attacks from malware, ransomware, and even data breaches, and the consequences could be disastrous.
Compliance with industry standards strengthens your systems’ protection. For railway, the most relevant are IEC 62443 (an international series of standards that address cybersecurity for operational technology in automation and control systems) and the new TS-50701 railway cybersecurity standard.
Our cybersecurity solutions can meet the certifications and are designed to provide engineers and management with the tools to detect and discover cyber-related issues on railway telecoms and signaling systems.
These include detecting for example: denial of service attack on RBCs, unusual mobile station usage (in order to help perform early detection of SIM card robbery), flooding (to perform DoS attack) and radio jamming.
First introduced in 2000 GSM-R, the telecoms component and ETCS, the signaling component, make up ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System), the single European signaling and speed control system.
Without GSM-R communications or operational ETCS signaling, the trains cannot run. However as with any industrial technology that’s over 20 years’ old the equipment and infrastructure can be more vulnerable to modern cyber-attacks as a result.
QATS Cybersecurity can be integrated with a customer’s SIEM solution if required. They are available as a standalone system or can be integrated into an existing QATS Railway solution.
Using the same data lake and QATS probe infrastructure, means you can integrate new cyber functionalities to discover system vulnerabilities, detect attacks, monitor current statuses, and manage issues more quickly and effectively.
