SMOD v1.0.3 Pentest Framework Modbus Protocol
smod is a modular framework with every kind of diagnostic and offensive feature you could need in order to pentest modbus protocol. It is a full Modbus protocol implementation using Python and Scapy. This software could be run on Linux/OSX under python 2.7.x.
SCADA (Process Control Networks) based systems have moved from proprietary closed networks to open source solutions and TCP/IP enabled networks steadily over recent years. This has made them vulnerable to the same security vulnerabilities that face our traditional computer networks.
The Modbus/TCP protocol was used as the reference protocol to display the effectiveness of the test bed in carrying out cyber attacks on a power system protocol. Modbus/TCP was chosen specifically for these reasons:
- modbus is still widely used in power systems.
- modbus/TCP is simple and easy to implement.
- modbus protocol libraries are freely available for utilities to implement smart grid applications.
You can use this tool to vulnerability assessment a modbus protocol.
