Security of ISES Measureserver® Module for Remote Experiments against Malign Attacks
Keywords:ISES, Measureserver, remote laboratory, remote experiment, security, attack
This paper focuses on the security of the remote laboratories, formed by remote experiments, against malign attacks. Surprisingly, in spite of the fact the remote laboratories have been existing for at least three decades, virtually no attention has been devoted to this vital subject. Specifically, the paper deals with the issues related to diverse attacks on the Measureserver® module, which is the basic unit of the ISES (Internet School Experimental System), based remote experiments, accessed by clients via web pages by common browsers. Such laboratories are sometimes called e-laboratories. In the introduction the basic features, principles and state of the art of this new ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) tool is described. The following chapter describes general security risks of remote laboratories for their software, hardware and as well as their specific risks. Next, the possible and existing attacks are analyzed for the Measureserver module. Finally, the suggestions for adequate security software and hardware solutions are outlined to secure the module.
