Dr Leandros Maglaras, a postdoctoral Research Fellow of the Department of Computing, was interviewed by IET (The Institution of Engineering and Technology) for the research work behind a paper he got accepted to IET Electronics Letters recently. The paper reports a distributed real-time intrusion detection system for SCADA systems based on an unsupervised machine learning technique called OCSVM (one-class support vector machine). In the interview, Dr Leandros Maglaras describes the main features of the proposed integrated intrusion detection mechanism and talks about the broader challenges in SCADA security that must be met in the near future.
