Cyber-Physical Systems Security


Background:

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) play a vital role in the metabolism of applications from large-scale industrial applications to critical infrastructures, such as smart grids, transportation networks, precision agriculture, and industrial control systems for many decades. Recent developments of CPS and their safety-critical applications have led to a renewed interest in CPS security. The interaction between information technology and the physical system has made control components of CPS vulnerable to malicious attacks. Recent cases of CPS attacks have clearly illustrated their susceptibility and raised awareness of the security challenges in these systems. These include attacks on large-scale critical infrastructures, such as the StuxNet virus attack on an industrial supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, the German steel mill cyber attack, and Maroochy Water breach. Similarly, malicious attacks on avionics and automotive vehicles have been reported, such as disabling the brakes and stopping the engine on civilian cars, and the U.S. drone RQ-170 captured in Iran.
