Network security is a major issue affecting SCADA systems designed and deployed in the last decade. Simulation of network attacks on a SCADA system presents certain challenges, since even a simple SCADA system is composed of models in several domains and simulation environments. Here we demon- strate the use of C2WindTunnel to simulate a plant and its controller, and the Ethernet network that connects them, in different simulation environments. We also simulate DDOS-like attacks on a few of the routers to observe and analyze the effects of a network attack on such a system.
