Abstract

This paper will provide an overview of the Process Control Security Requirements Forum (PCSRF) and the System Protection Profile for Industrial Control Systems (SPP-ICS) document. The SPP-ICS presents a cohesive, crossindustry, baseline set of security requirements for new industrial process control systems. It is based on the ISO/IEC 15408 Common Criteria, a widely used standard for defining traditional IT security requirements. The SPP-ICS can be combined with specific pulp/paper security requirements to produce a document that addresses future security requirements for the pulp/paper industry.
