On Nov 16, we announced the availability of ProtoPredator for Smart Meters (PP4SM). That tool, aimed at security and operational testing of optical interfaces, has been causing quite a stir. Lots of vendors and utilities have been in touch to hear more about the product and the capabilities it brings to bear.
We are pleased with the interest in the PP4SM release and happy to discuss some of our further plans for future ProtoPredator products. The idea is for the ProtoPredator line to expand into a family of products aimed at giving developers, device designers and owners/operators a tool set for doing operational and security testing. We hope to extend the product family across a range of ICS protocols. We are currently working on a suite of ProtoPredator tools in our testing lab, even as we “scratch our own itch” and design them to answer the needs we have in performing testing of SmartGrid and other ICS component security assessments and penetration tests.
Thanks to the community for their interest in ProtoPredator. We have a lot more to come and we greatly appreciate your support, engagement and feedback.
