modbussim is a simple modbus-based PLC simulation. It was developed to explore the basics of
exploiting the modbus protocol for purposes of data gathering and/or modifying the behavior of
This project was developed for educational purposes: CS544 Cybersecurity, University of New Mexico, Spring 2016.
modbussim: the simulation. compliation requires the libmodbus library at libmodbus.org. Compilation with the optional annoying-sine-wave-indicating-imminent-explosion thread requires the alsa sound libraries. The modbussim directory also contains some tools for writing to and reading from the simulation, as well as determining how many registers an instance of the simulation provides.

the relevant port and register for causing the simulation to go into an 'explode' state, and then puts it there.
scripts: scripts (bro, python) we used to process and plot captured modbus over tcp packets.
