SIMATIC STEP 7 Basic (TIA Portal) is the price-optimized subset of STEP 7 Professional software that can be used both for engineering the SIMATIC S7-1200 Basic Controllers and for configuring the SIMATIC HMI Basic Panels, because WinCC Basic is part of the software package.

Most industrial automation software packages contain proprietary, secure firmware that controls the function of control devices (actuators) and other industrial devices. The reason is obvious – manufacturers would like to protect their secrets and enjoy the (almost) monopolistic position in the supply chain of industrial automation. But this secrecy does not always work as expected: many industrial automation manufacturers simply do not encrypt the firmware of their industrial devices because the firmware is already open-source. Because of the nonencrypted firmware, anyone who has physical access to these devices could potentially use the embedded software to gain unauthorized access to the industrial network.

Since 2012, Siemens security engineers have been able to crack the encryption protection of the firmware of industrial controllers. By doing so, they found the code of the proprietary firmware and published the source code: the security experts of the German engineering group discreetly disclosed the secrets of the industrial controller. That also meant that numerous industrial controllers were unintentionally opened. The reason for the open-source disclosure was the high level of responsibility and ethics that dominant the work of the German engineering group.

The manufacturer Siemens agreed to this step-by-step disclosure and, at the same time, to make available for everyone the security protection of the firmware of SIMATIC products. The computing time Siemens needed to crack the encryption protection is now less than three days. In addition to the course of action by the responsible Siemens security engineers, it is also important to emphasize the confidentiality of the information. Competitors could not identify vulnerabilities in the firmware of industrial controllers in order to exploit them in their projects.
