The Q-GasPot® is a network honeypot solution built specifically to simulate Veeder- oot Guardian AST Tank Gauges, and runs on an extremely small form factor, low-power-consumption network appliance. Veeder Root Guardian Tank Gauges are widespread in the oil and gas industry, and used for, among other things, inventorying fuels. The Q-GasPot was designed to randomize the gauges as much as possible so no two instances look exactly alike. This makes it possible for the Q-GasPot to display literally hundreds of realistic attack surfaces (“decoys”) on a network, which, in turn, can help catch, and stymie, a hacking attempt. To the hacker, it appears to be a very large fuel depot. If the hacker probes an attack surface, the hacking incident is caught, and an alert is issued. Having hundreds of attack surfaces radically shifts the odds in favor of the defender, and against a successful hack.
The Q-GasPot is the only honeypot appliance specifically built to provide network obfuscation (camouflaging of network assets) for Operations Technology (OT) networks with Veeder-Root Guardian Gas Gauges.
