OTORIO, an industrial cybersecurity organization, has launched an open-source tool. It has been designed and developed to enable companies to strengthen Siemen’s SIMATIC PCS 7 DCS. The solution and tool have been provided as a PowerShell script on GitHub. It has been successfully tested on Windows server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, Windows 7, and Windows 10. End-users can run the script with the credentials of an admin only.
The solution can assess the security setup of SIMATIC PCS 7 OS client, engineering station, and OS server. The collated data is then analyzed relevant to OTORIO’s research into Siemen’s security recommendations and PCS 7 DCS.
