IEEE International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security (CPS-Sec)
will be held in conjunction with IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) 2019
10-12 June, 2019
Washington, D.C., USA
Nowadays, the correct functioning of information systems represents a fundamental milestone for the well-being of modern economies and societies. The scientific evolution of digital, analog, and physical components with the interactions between networks created the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Even though the benefits of the cyber and physical world interactions are noticeable, new security challenges have arisen: typical vulnerabilities from the cyber domain emerged in CPS. Cyber-attacks over CPS pose different security challenges. In particular, classic Information Technology (IT) cyber security tools are considered partially or totally ineffective in CPS scenarios because complex cyber-physical attacks could avoid security detection methodologies developed specifically for the IT world. The prevention, detection, and mitigation of cyber-attacks encompass both the physical and the cyber layers of a system: to this end, approaches to securing CPS consider techniques adopted in the physical domain and in the cyber space.

Following the success of the previous editions, the IEEE International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security 2019 (CPS-Sec 2019) aims to represent a forum for researchers and practitioners from industry and academia interested in the areas of CPS security. CPS-Sec 2019 seeks novel submissions describing practical and theoretical solutions to the cyber-physical security challenges. A submission may represent any CPS domain, including embedded systems, Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), SCADA Systems, Smart-Grid Systems, Critical Infrastructure, Automotive and Transportation Systems, Medical applications.

Example topics of interest are given below, but are not limited to:

  • Secure CPS architectures
  • Authentication mechanisms for CPS
  • Access control for CPS
  • Key management in CPS
  • Data security and privacy for CPS
  • Forensics for CPS
  • Intrusion detection for CPS
  • Trusted-computing in CPS
  • Energy-efficient and secure CPS
  • Availability, recovery and auditing for CPS
  • Distributed secure solutions for CPS
  • Threat models for CPS
  • Physical layer security for CPS
  • Security on heterogeneous CPS
  • Secure protocol design in CPS
  • Vulnerability analysis of CPS
  • Anonymization in CPS
  • Security of CPS in automotive systems
  • Security of CPS in aerospace systems
  • Security of embedded systems
  • Security of CPS in medical devices/systems
  • Security of CPS in civil engineering systems/devices
  • Security of industrial control systems
  • Security of Internet-of-Things
