Visible to the public Resiliency-Aware Deployment of SDN in Smart Grid SCADA: A Formal Synthesis Model

The supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) network in a smart grid must be reliable and efficient to transmit real-time data to the controller, especially when the system is under contingencies or cyberattacks. Introducing the features of software-defined networks (SDN) into a SCADA network helps in better management of communication and deployment of novel grid control operations.

A smart grid is a widely distributed engineering system with overhead transmission lines. Physical damage to these power lines, from natural calamities or technical failures, will disrupt the functional integrity of the grid. To ensure the continuation of the grid's operational flow when those phenomena happen, the grid operator must immediately take steps to nullify the impacts and repair the problems, even if those occur in hardly-reachable remote areas.


Visible to the public DDAF: Deceptive Data Acquisition Framework against Stealthy Attacks in Cyber-Physical Systems

Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are converging towards a hybrid platform that is becoming ubiquitous in all modern infrastructures. The massive deployment of CPS requires comprehensive, secure, and reliable communication. The integration of complex and heterogeneous systems makes enormous space for the adversaries to get into the network and inject malicious data. To obfuscate and mislead the attackers, we propose DDAF, a deception defense-based data acquisition framework for a hierarchical communication network of CPSs.

The CDC now is issuing a Level 2 travel advisory nationwide and recommending that all gatherings of 50 or more people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks. Mayor Holt Oklahoma City came out with a similar statement Sunday for meetings held in the Downtown area where the Sheraton Hotel is located.
