Taxonomic Search: CPS Security
Cyber--physical systems (CPS) have become increasingly prevalent in applications including health care, energy, and transportation. The tight coupling between cyber and physical components of CPS implies that cyber--attacks can degrade the safety, availability, and performance of physical components. The cyber components also introduce multiple entry points to the CPS, lowering the cost of attacks compared to purely physical systems.
This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia,
industry, and the government to discuss system theoretic approaches to enhance
the security and resilience of control and monitoring systems. These systems
govern the operation of critical infrastructure systems such as power transmission,
water distribution, transportation networks, building automation systems and
process control systems.
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are characterized by the tight coupling and coordination among sensing, communications, computational and physical resources and are exhibited in many application areas including industrial control systems (ICS). ICS encompass several types of control systems including: supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and distributed control systems (DCS). CPS are prevalent in almost every critical infrastructure sector such as: electricity, water, gas, transportation, chemical, and healthcare.
