WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) took a further step to protect the nation’s electric infrastructure today by publishing a joint white paper to help the electric sector identify vendors of components on their networks so that they can take any necessary action to mitigate potential risks to the bulk power system.
The electric sector relies on networking and telecommunications equipment to operate the bulk power system. This white paper identifies several noninvasive techniques that security professionals may use to identify vendors of a well-known and often-targeted component known as a network interface controller (NIC).
