CPS Security


Visible to the public High-Fidelity, Scalable, Open-Access Cyber Security Testbed for Accelerating Smart Grid Innovations and Deployments

Explanation of Demonstration: (1) Demonstration of a realistic CPS Security Testbed for the power grid and its use-cases for research experimentation, education, and industry cybersecurity training. (2) Demonstration of real cyber attack-defense scenarios, such as Ukraine 2015 and 2016 attacks and suitable mitigations. (3) Demonstration of advanced wide-area protection and control applications, such as oscillation monitoring and control, automatic generation control, and remedial action schemes.


Visible to the public Foundations for Secure Control of Cyber-Physical Systems

The increasing set of functionalities, network interoperability, and system design complexity have introduced security vulnerabilities in cyber-physical systems (CPS). As recently demonstrated, a remote attacker can disrupt the operation of a car to either disable the vehicle or hijack it. High-profile security incidents in other CPS domains include a large-scale attack on Ukraine's power-grid and the StuxNet attack on an industrial system, while the RQ-170 Sentinel drone capture has shown that even safety-critical military CPS can be compromised.
