CONES: COnverged NEtworks for SCADA
CONES is a real-time middleware toolkit aimed at supporting converged SCADA networks. CONES provides 1) host-based process management, 2) network resource management, and 3) host-based network resource management. These capabilities collectively provide a basis for convergence of SCADA networks while ensuring that isolation and timeliness properties of all SCADA applications (e.g., protection, monitoring, and maintenance) are supported as per the requirements of those applications. CONES provides an architecture, an advanced prototype implementation, and extensive experimentation results to demonstrate the feasibility of CONES. Knowledge and research results from this effort was also transitioned to the development of the TCIPG Testbed and the DEFT Cyber-Physical Experimentation Framework.
