Securing the systems that control our current critical infrastructure

INL’s cyber and controls expertise guided by intel-informed threat analysis provides unique products and capabilities. U.S. critical infrastructures that provide electrical power, clean water and other vital services to ensure our national security, lifeline services and economic prosperity are vulnerable to cyberattacks. All critical infrastructures rely on industrial control systems to serve as the command center for these vital assets.

Idaho National Laboratory has invested in the Cybercore Integration Center to advance the cybersecurity of vital cyber-physical systems through leadership, federal partnerships and research and development. The center focuses on:

  • Securing the systems that control our current critical infrastructures and military platforms
  • Designing the next generation of infrastructure through cyber-informed engineering principles
  • Accelerating the development of the control systems cyber security workforce of the future


INL has a team of  power, controls, electrical and systems engineering experts that incorporate experience and application of controls in critical lifeline sectors and expanded vendor-specific

CFA is a foundational approach to identifying, prioritizing, and mitigating the risk that is inherent in the delivery of critical functions that depend on digital technology.

Consequence-driven Cyber-informed Engineering (CCE) is a methodology focused on securing the nation’s critical infrastructure systems.

The Control Environment Laboratory Resource (CELR) is an environment for government and private industry partners to experience the possible effects of kinetic cyber-physical attacks. CELR allows users to perform security research on industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems.
