I just got introduced to the amazing world of encabulation, and figured it’s worth coming out from under my rock long enough to link to some YouTube videos which exemplify the importance of this field.
I feel that the seminal work in this area is the classic Rockwell Retro Encabulator, presented by Mike Kraft, which provides a meaningful upgrade over the preceding Bud Haggart version.
Chrysler later released the Chrysler Turbo Encabulator instruction video, where, unlike any other encabulator video I could find, Mike Kraft explains in detail how to diagnose and service the encabulator. It includes the very important piece of advice which many technicians have used since:
If it’s below 10 RGs, you’d be directed to perform a series of tests that will effectively raise the billable hours for the service department but will perform no other useful function.
The Macquarie Telecom SD-WAN Turbo Cloud Encabulator offered a virtualised version of the encabulator, for use in the cloud. However, this pales in comparison with the SANS ICS HyperEncabulator, presented by the legendary Mike Kraft, which not only goes into detail of the history of the encabulator, but how encabulation can be applied to cybersecurity.
There are more encabulation resources online, but I think these provide a meaningful introduction to the subject.
