Safe from a cyberattack?

Monday, 7 February 2005, 11:33 AM EST

Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials are preparing to write new computer and software standards for safety systems in nuclear power plants.

NRC officials released a 15-page draft guide, "Criteria for Use of Computers in Safety Systems of Nuclear Power Plants," in December 2004. They are seeking public comment before revising the draft, a process that could take six months or more. The new document will eventually replace a three-page guide that NRC officials issued in January 1996 for ensuring the safety of the nation's 103 nuclear power plants.
