Securing Cyber-Physical Systems from Cyber Attacks

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Content description Cyber-physical systems (CPS) comprise the backbone of national critical infrastructure such as power grids, transportation systems, and home automation systems, which are highly interconnected and mutually dependent systems. Such systems support a diverse set of services using a wide variety of Internet of Things (IoT) devices for sensing and actuation. The actions initiated by the service controllers could occasionally lead to conflicts or undesirable, unsafe outcomes both due to inadvertent misconfiguration, attacks on the configuration state, and poorly understood dependencies.
This presentation covers relevant concepts, the state-of-the-art, representative solutions, and open challenges in CPS security. Different types of attack scenarios on the sensing and cyber parts of CPS with recent examples from intelligent transportation and power systems, theoretical aspects and analysis of different mitigation strategies to secure the system from adversarial perturbations will be discussed. I will compare and contrast the Mitigation techniques and discuss their strengths and weaknesses will be compared and contrasted and practical implementation of each of the algorithms along with future challenges will be described.
