White Paper: Monitoring SCADA Environments with Splunk
Key factors to consider when designing a Splunk architecture for monitoring and reporting in SCADA environments
Splunk Enterprise software provides a scalable and versatile platform for collection, correlation, reporting and alerting on machine data generated by all of the devices, control systems, sensors, SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), networks, applications and end users connected by today’s networks.
Rivium has developed software technology to significantly simplify the process of integrating Splunk into existing SCADA environments. The Splunk Modbus TCP Collector is a configurable add-on for Splunk that has been designed to suit many SCADA environments using Modbus TCP/IP.
This technical whitepaper provides guidance on key factors to consider when designing a Splunk architecture with the Splunk Modbus TCP Collector for monitoring a SCADA environment. We will discuss our method of capturing data to monitor your environment using a real life use case to demonstrate these concepts.
