Description

The engineering workstation is usually a high-end very reliable computing platform designed for configuration, maintenance and diagnostics of the control system applications and other control system equipment. The system is usually made up of redundant hard disk drives, high speed network interface, reliable CPUs, performance graphics hardware, and applications that provide configuration and monitoring tools to perform control system application development, compilation and distribution of system modifications.1

Levels

Notes

Many engineering workstations are laptops. Because of their mobile nature, lack of desktop standard, and frequent connection to control system devices and network, engineering workstations can serve as entry points for attacks.
