With the computerization of control and management systems deployed in nuclear power plants (NPPs), new requirements for cybersecurity assessment are emerging, which motivate the studies on new methodologies and technologies for analyzing the impacts and consequences of cyber-attacks that potentially target the instrumentation and control systems in NPPs. These analyses can also evaluate the reliability and robustness of various system designs of the NPP environment in the resistance to cyber-attacks. Several testing platforms that can emulate cyber-attacks and deduce their impacts on NPPs have recently been studied and developed. This chapter compares these platforms from the perspectives of system structures and the supported attack scenarios.
