Security monitoring tool launched for GSM-R and ETCS

Comtest Wireless has launched a new cyber sniffing tool that works in real-time for security monitoring of GSM-R and ETCS. The company’s NetProbe Owl installation is the first-generation security monitoring on the market to help network engineers detect security and disruption issues on the GSM-R and ETCS network.

The company designed the NetProbe Owl to track suspicious messages and sessions in monitored traffic and send real-time alerts. Comtest Wireless developed the tool for a better understanding of the pattern of attacks to help engineers conduct further analysis.

“Cyber security is an increasingly important issue,” says Marco Bussi, Co-founder and Business Development Executive at Comtest Wireless, “As our solutions already collect passive data on the rail telecoms and signalling networks, it was a logical progression to look at extending the test and measurement solutions to include security monitoring. Thanks to NetProbe Owl, it will be much easier to see if, when and where the GSM-R and ETCS networks are under attack.”
