AbstractCyber Physical System (CPS) is one of the emerging technologies of the day due to its large number of applications. Its applications extends to automotive, commercial, medical, home appliances and manufacturing industries. Mass research is being conducted in this area including design models, signal processing, control system models, communication models and security. One of the most important aspects of these is security and privacy of CPS. There are a number of vulnerabilities and threats that can be used by an attacker to exploit a cyber physical system. This paper provides a brief review of current security threats, vulnerabilities and its solutions for CPS. For the sake of simplicity the security threats have been divided into two classes i.e. control security and information security. Based on this division various attack methods and their possible solutions have been discussed.
