Intrusion Prevention



Distributed Network Protocol (DNP3) is an industry standard for inter-operations between devices and is commonly found in SCADA systems. DNP3 enables data and command exchange between a sever and a client device. The server sends commands and controls the operation of a client device. Non-DNP3 Traffic was detected on the DNP3 Port (20000), this could indicate malicious activity.

Affected Products

DNP3 servers.


Denial of service, reduced system integrity.

Recommended Actions
