Securing software for the smart grid: Analyze early and often

Securing software for the smart grid: Analyze early and often | Secure software development | Scoop.it

When delivering software-based systems for energy and utilities, it is vital to include cyber security assessment as part of systems analysis and architecture prior to building, integrating, and delivering the system. Applications slated for use in the smart grid should make use of a secure software development life cycle, ensuring faster customer acceptance and optimum return on investment.

 

Vulnerabilities introduced during the software development and delivery processes for smart grid systems can arise from a lack of oversight in cyber security evaluation, leading to poor software integration and overall system vulnerability. Reliability protections, data loss prevention, and privacy enforcement for energy customers provide a strong business case for enforcing strict cyber security policies. Standards applicable to software delivery include Guidelines for Smart Grid Cyber Security: NISTIR 7628 and PCI for credit card processing, among others. A viable software delivery process for companies in the energy and utilities sector must include these types of cyber security measures.

OS X: Updating OS X and Mac App Store apps

OS X: Updating OS X and Mac App Store apps | Secure software development | Scoop.it
Learn how to get software updates for OS X and apps from the Mac App Store. In Mountain Lion, use Mac App Store for OS X Updates.

 

Updating your software in OS X Mountain Lion

In Mountain Lion, Mac App Store delivers OS X Updates instead of the Software Update app.

Notifications that updates are available

Notification alerts in Mountain Lion inform you that updates are available.

Click "Details" to open the Mac App Store and see details about the updates available.If present, click "Update" to install software updates.If present, click "Restart" to install software updates that require a restart.

Tip: You can dismiss the Notification Alert by clicking it and swiping to the right.

You may see a badge appear with the number of software updates available on the App Store icon in the Dock.

Updating your software

In addition to clicking "Update" in a notification alert, you can follow these steps to get the latest software updates for OS X and Mac App Store apps.

Important: If you disable Spotlight on the startup volume, some updates may not appear.

Choose Apple () menu > Software Update… – If prompted, enter an admin name and password.

The App Store opens and displays any software updates available for OS X and Mac App Store apps. OS X updates will be at the top of the list. Note: Opening the App Store by clicking its Dock icon will only show Mac App Store app updates.

Click "Update All" to install all available software updates. If prompted, enter an admin name and password then Apple ID and password.Click "Update" to install individual software updates. If prompted, enter an admin name and password then Apple ID and password.

Monitoring the progress of installing software updates

After a software update had been started, the following progress indicators will appear:

The blue progress bar and download stats within the App Store app

The blue progress bar under the Launchpad icon on the Dock. Tip: To see the Launchpad bezel containing download stats, hover your cursor pointer over the Launchpad Dock icon.

Software Update pane of System Preferences

Use the Software Update System Preference to customize software updates.

Choose Apple () menu > System Preferences… > Software Update.

Note: If needed, click the padlock icon in the lower left and enter an admin name and password to unlock.

Automatically check for updates – Select this checkbox to have your Mac check for updates automatically.Download newly available updates in the background – Select this checkbook to have your Mac download updates automatically in the background so they are ready to be installed.Install system data files and security updates – Select this checkbox to have your Mac install system files and security updates automatically.Automatically download apps purchased on other Macs – Select this checkbox to have your Mac download apps (from the Mac App Store) that you purchased on other Macs.Note: You will see the Apple ID you have used sign into the Mac App Store after you have signed in.You must be logged in with an admin account to enable automatic downloads.

Show Updates or Check Now – Click Show Updates to open the Mac App Store and see any available updates. Click Check Now to check for updates.

Important: You should install OS X updates as soon as possible.

Secure connection to Apple's update servers

Mountain Lion uses HTTPS to make a secure connection to Apple's Software Update servers. Some web proxy configurations may prevent this secure connection. See this article for more information or consult with your local network administrator.

Updating your software in OS X Lion, Mac OS X v10.6, or earlier

NSF launches impactful vision and strategy for a 21st century cyberinfrastructure framework for science and education

NSF will take a leadership role in providing software as enabling infrastructure for science and engineering research and education, and in promoting software as a principal component of its comprehensive CIF21 vision. This includes ensuring comprehensive, usable, and secure software and services to further new scientific discovery and innovative education approaches by its researchers working in a globally connected and data-enabled world; fostering sustainable communities of software users, researchers, developers, industrial scientists and engineers, educators, and students that span disciplines, professions, and regions/countries; and promoting new approaches to learning and workforce development in software, and supporting investigations in the use of software for novel learning mechanisms. Reducing the complexity of software will be a unifying theme across the CIF21 vision, advancing both the use and development of new software and promoting the ubiquitous integration of scientific software across all disciplines, in education, and in industry.

 

GOALS FOR SOFTWARE FOR SCIENCE, ENGINEERING, AND EDUCATION
To meet the challenges before it, NSF will adopt, as part of its larger CIF21 mission and program, five interconnected strategic goals for
delivering and sustaining software to advance science and engineering research and education:
•• Capabilities: Support the creation and maintenance of an innovative, integrated, reliable, sustainable and accessible software ecosystem providing new capabilities that advance and
accelerate scientific inquiry and application at
unprecedented complexity and scale.
•• Research: Support the foundational research necessary to continue to efficiently advance scientific software, responding to new technological, algorithmic, and scientific advances.
•• Science: Enable transformative, interdisciplinary, collaborative, science and engineering research and education through the use of advanced software and services.
•• Education: Empower the current and future diverse workforce of scientists and engineers equipped with essential skills to use and develop software. Further, ensure that the software and
services are effectively used in both the research and education process realizing new opportunities for teaching and outreach.
•• Policy: Transform practice through new policies for software addressing challenges of academic culture, open dissemination and use, reproducibility and trust of data/models/simulation, curation and sustainability, and that address issues of governance, citation, stewardship, and attribution of software authorship.
