DNP3 SAv5 and TLS: Different trust boundaries
Historical Note: This post originally appeared on Automatak.com. Subsequent analysis under a DHS grant, changed my opinion on DNP3 SAv5 substantially. There is a good paper published by IEEE S&P available here that I co-authored with Sergey Bratus that better summarizes my technical opinion of DNP3 SAv5. The purpose of this post is not to compare the merits of SAv5 vs. TLS, but rather to point out how the security concept of trust boundaries is applied to the analysis of dnp3 implementations themselves.
