CISA and MITRE Announce Open Source Caldera for OT


The tool is optimized for operational technology networks.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and MITRE have announced Caldera for OT, a cyberattack emulation platform developed specifically for operational technology (OT) networks.

The project is an extension of MITRE Caldera, which is aimed at reducing the amount of time and resources needed for routine cybersecurity testing.

According to the announcement, Caldera for OT builds on that functionality, “offering 29 distinct OT abilities to the hundreds of existing enterprise-focused abilities already included with Caldera.” These new plugins “enable practitioners to emulate adversary behavior across both enterprise and industrial networks.”

The Caldera for OT plugins are free and open source and can be downloaded from the project’s GitHub repository.
