The protection of critical infrastructure systems is a hotly debated topic. The very label "critical infrastructure" implies that these systems are important, and they are: they support our everyday lives, from the water and food in our homes to our physical and financial welfare. This article explores the recent evolution of programmable logic controllers (PCSs) and their environments, explains the need for improved security in these systems, and describes some of the emerging research areas that offer promise in PCS security.
