    An anonymous reader writes “Ralph Langner, the security expert who deciphered how Stuxnet targeted the Siemens PLCs in Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility, has come up with a cybersecurity framework for industrial control systems (ICS) that he says is a better fit than the U.S. government’s Cyber Security Framework. Langner’s Robust ICS Planning and Evaluation, or RIPE, framework takes a different approach to locking down ICS/SCADA plants than the NIST-led one, focusing on security capabilities rather than risk. He hopes it will help influence the final version of the U.S. government’s framework.”
