Abstract: Industrial Control Systems are part of the critical infrastructures of a country, which govern and sustain the proper operation of it: wáter, sanitation, pharmaceutical industry, energy... are some examples. These critical infrastructures need a main controller, and that is when the Industrial Control Systems (ICS) come into play: they allow to manage and regulate the behaviour of the Industrial Systems that define them. These Industrial Systems are the target of continuous cyber attacks, as has been the case in Ukraine in 2015 that affected 225,000 users of the power grid; or the well-known media case of Stuxnet, also known as the first cyberwar weapon that targeted the Natanz's nuclear plant in Iran. The consequences on this type of systems can range from excessive economic losses to what is worse: they can put the lifes of the citizens of a country at risk. For this reason, it is vitally important to perform security audits on Industrial Control Systems. The objective of this Master's Thesis is to conduct a study and develop a methodology to perform security audits or penetration tests (pentest) on this type of systems. At the same time, the approach developed through the implementation of a PoC (Proof of Concept) on the low interaction honeypot Conpot will be put into practice.
