Abstract: With the development of information technology and industrial automation, industrial control systems have become increasingly complicated which increases the difficulty to detect running errors. Errors usually lead to industry incidences, which in turn threaten civil property and even national economy. In this paper, we propose a novel safety mechanism based on data mining. Complex network analysis, data prediction, expert analysis and self-adaptive downgrade and upgrade techniques are also applied to solve safety problems in industrial control systems. To protect industrial control system, we define a safety protection status. The system can be switched into protection status by specific operations, which finally transfer the system back to safe status. Using data mining techniques, we propose a general safety mechanism which has four operations, including global safety, initiative safety, real-time safety, and self safety.
