  • Patent number: 10291506
    Abstract: An anomaly detection system installed in a plant communications network detects unexpected changes or anomalies in the traffic patterns over the communications network to detect infected or potentially infected nodes. The anomaly detection system includes various data collection modules at each of the nodes of the network which operate to view the message traffic into and out of the node and to generate metadata pertaining to the message traffic. The communication modules at the nodes send the traffic metadata to an anomaly analysis engine, which processes the metadata using a rules engine that analyzes the metadata using a set of logic rules and traffic pattern baseline data to determine if current traffic patterns at one or more network nodes are anomalous. If so, the analysis engine may generate an alert or message to a user informing the user of the potentially infected node, may automatically disconnect the node from the network, or may take some other action to minimize the effects of an infected node.
