Digital Ghost, a new Real-Time and Active Cyber Defense — For Real!

Digital Ghost is a new paradigm for securing industrial assets and critical infrastructure from both malicious cyber-attacks and naturally occurring faults. It provides a new line of defense at the physical domain layer in addition to current IT/OT layer solutions. The industry has developed advanced high-performance algorithms for detection, localization and neutralization of abnormalities (attack and fault), as well as algorithms for abnormality forecasting, providing predictive situation awareness and early warning capabilities.

Many critical infrastructure assets, such as power plants, transmission and distribution networks, transportation systems and water processing plants, are efficiently and safely operated using control systems. Such control systems act as the "brains" of the plant or asset reading information from sensors and sending command signals to actuators. Control systems are also critical subsystems in mobile assets such as aircraft, automobiles and even locomotives. However, these same critical control systems are now the focus of sophisticated cyber-attacks.

To help provide a new layer of cyber-defense, an advanced technology called the “Digital Ghost” was developed using our deep domain knowledge, artificial intelligence and the latest in controls theory. A Digital Ghost acts above and in addition to common information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) cybersecurity methods.

The critical assets in today’s societies, such as power plants, gas turbines, infrastructure, healthcare functions, and everything human needs to keep society working, are all governed by physics, which we deeply understand and leverage to create Digital Twins of these machines. Digital Ghosts uses these Digital Twins, knowledge of the associated control systems, and very advanced artificial intelligence algorithms to continuously monitor the asset’s behavior. Digital Ghosts can determine if systems (IoT machines) are behaving abnormally due to a cyber attack even when the operator’s user interface says everything is OK.

Towards a Data-Driven Future

Our total offering fits any Industry, not only within the Aerospace-, Defence- and Security Industry and the Information- and Communications Technology Industry, where we do most of our work today.

We support the private business sector and the public administration sector (Government Authorities) by providing qualified consulting primarily around, and within, Systems LifeCycle Management (SLCM) Services. We cover common commercial-, legal- and operational- as well as technical- and administrative- disciplines, within programme-, project-, quality- and configuration management including production of digital and hardcopy material, which entails our customers and end-users to safely manage their technically advanced and complex systems.

Detection

Determines if an abnormality has occurred by using Digital Twins to understand the physics and controller-dependent asset behavior.

Localization

Determines what is under attack or has faulted, in terms of monitored nodes (i.e., sensor, actuator or control nodes).

Forecasting

Provides critical real-time insight into system operations so that operators can monitor malicious activities, tampering of control system parameters, or the potential onset of a fault.

Neutralization

Maintains operability and availability of the system with minimal degradation to the performance and reduces the possibility for a forced emergency shutdown. While the system is operating with the neutralization function, agile response teams and other intrusion/fault response capabilities can be deployed to manually triage the event.

How well does the technology work?

Through high fidelity power plant simulations, industrial companies has performed extensive validation studies showing Detection and Localization accuracies over 98% for various stealthy cyber-attacks. Neutralization has been shown to be effective when nearly 50% of the asset’s sensors have been compromised by a cyber-attack.

Applications of Digital Ghost

The industry is looking to move Digital Ghost out of the lab. We believe that this is a horizontal cybersecurity technology that can help protect critical infrastructure assets in a variety of application areas including:
– Thermal Power,
– Vehicle surveillance,
– Building surveillance,
– Renewables,
– Oil and Gas, and
– Transmission and Distribution systems
