Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is a prevalent control system architecture that is commonly used for industrial automation. The SCADA systems play an integral role in large-scale processes for interfacing with transducers and machinery for real time control and data acquisition. The increasing demand to integrate SCADA systems with remote networks and Internet of Things technologies has raised concerns for information security specialists. These systems are thought to have notable security vulnerabilities and may be subject to an increasing number of cyber threats. In this paper/project, several students from ___________ State University design and deploy a SCADA laboratory to better understand these systems and the inherent security threats that go with them. The purposes of the SCADA laboratory is to provide for a realistic imitation of an industrial control SCADA system that can be used to study real-life cases such as penetration assessment and testing, SCADA protocols analysis, vulnerability assessment and testing, and the SCADA forensics research. This laboratory is intendent to be used for both Digital and Cyber Forensic Engineering Technology, and Engineering Technology programs. The laboratory will serve for undergraduate computer science and engineering technology courses as well as research projects in the areas of instrumentation and interfacing, process control, digital forensics, and cyber security. The details including system infrastructure, challenges faced during the establishment of the laboratory, student and faculty involvement, laboratory course objectives, student assessments, and the industry support will be covered in the paper.
