  • Publication number: 20220329564
    Abstract: Conventional security measures are generally intended for an IT system, and it has been difficult to satisfy a real-time property and availability requested to a control system. Furthermore, since a time-division type time slot communication method is not taken into consideration, such time slot communication has problems in efficient utilization of computer resources and decrease in availability. In order to solve the above-described problems, the present invention specifies a time slot from characteristics of a communication packet received by a reception unit 133 by using a time slot characteristic storage unit 130, and selects, in accordance with the specified time slot, an inspection pattern stored in an inspection pattern storage unit 136 by using an inspection pattern selection unit 131.
