Joe Weiss Testifies!

Joe Weiss Testifies Before a Senate Committee

We've managed to extract from the Senate's streaming video feed only that part of the hearing that consists of Joe's testimony. The previous post gives the information on where to see the entire hearing, but we thought we'd give Joe's testimony itself some blog time.

  • <p> There are two things about the testimony that I have a hard time understanding. </p> <p> First, when can we let Vitek Boden rest in peace? If the case proves anything, it's that intentional attacks are extremely rare and result in minor damage. If we forget about Boden, we can still make our point, probably even better. The point is that the risk is bigger by several magnitudes than the Boden case suggests. The point is that right now, aggressive malware targeting control systems might knock out significant portions of various industries simultaneously. The Boden case is misleading. </p> <p> Second, why NIST? Why not ISA-99? NIST makes heavy references to ISA-99, which is also accepted as an international standard, as the adoption by IEC makes clear. </p> <p> Regards  </p> <p> Ralph Langner </p> <p> Langner Communications AG </p> <p>   </p>
