Mitre Unveils Automated Adversary Emulation Solutions for Operational Technology

Not-for-profit organization Mitre has released an extension for its open-source Caldera platform to enable automated exercises replicating threats to operational technology, which are hardware and software that detect or change industrial equipment and processes through monitoring and control.

Caldera is an adversary emulation platform built on Mitre Att&ck and is aimed at supporting cybersecurity personnel by automating operations, security assessments and teaming.

According to a company blog post on Medium, Caldera for OT is a plugin set that provides support for industrial protocols such as BACnet and Modbus. It was developed alongside the Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute, a Mitre-managed, federally-funded research center tasked with enhancing critical infrastructure resilience.

Caldera for OT resulted from a collaboration between HSSEDI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency to automate adversary emulation in a simulated environment for OT research. The adversary techniques identified by the organizations became the basis of Caldera for OT.

The extensions are now available on GitHub, Mitre said Tuesday.
