Critical control systems manage many of today's critical infrastructures, whose continuous operation, maintenance, and protection are high national priorities for governments around the world. The authors present the fundamental architectural components of these systems, identify vulnerabilities and potential threats, and describe protection solutions that can be deployed to mitigate attacks.
