For instance, Project LOGIIC leveraged ArcSight's event correlation engine to collect messages and log entries from many different devices on the network and infer the relationships among them.
By intelligently piecing together the connections among many disparate events coming into the control center, the LOGIIC system could filter out much of the noise, identify significant patterns and ultimately provide the big security picture to plant operators.
Further leveraging technology like ArcSight, Project LOGIIC set about to build smart connectors to data sources unique to the oil and gas industry such as the Telvent SCADA system, the Honeywell DCS process control system and the OmniFlow flow computer system.
Project results were shared at the LOGIIC Summit on September 11, 2006, in Houston, Texas.
SRI's work in the LOGIIC consortium is supported by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Interior (DOI) under Contract No.
The LOGIIC (Linking the Oil and Gas Industry to Improve Cyber Security) Consortium is a model example of a partnership between Government and industry that is committed to combining resources to define and advance the security of the oil and gas industry.
