DNP3 Outstation Unsolicited Messaging Support

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote DNP3 outstation supports unsolicited response.

Description :

There are a variety of reasons why polling SCADA outstations may not
provide adequate or timely information. To address this, DNP3
supports unsolicited response where the outstations initiate a
response without a poll request when a threshold is exceeded or an
event is triggered. The host has a DNP3 server that currently is
configured to support unsolicited response.

Solution :

Disable unsolicited response if it is not required.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0

Family: SCADA
