IDoT Use case collection

Continuation/recap of list discussion on risk of having a single protocol/channel for all things.

An earlier shared presentation may have lead readers to believe that the plethora of protocols is a problem in itself.

Scott Jensen had categorized things into three layers 

  • measurements / actuators
  • control
  • coordination

(supervisory, control, data acqusition)

Consensus was that the categorization is okay and we can try to map our use cases to these.

"A thermometer sounds harmless but a hacked thermometer hides an overheating problem or could initiate a nuclear power plant shutdown."

Action Point 1:

To try to iteratively build a spreadsheet with the SCADA classfiications down one axis and a common feature/functionality on the other access
