Visible to the public Understanding Sub-Second Instabilities in a Global Cyber-Physical System

Abstract: Future CPS will include large, decentralized systems of semi-autonomous sensor and actuator components, and will need to operate safely beyond human response times. One current data-rich example is the U.S. network of electronic exchange networks which is the largest and fastest network CPS in existence, but is already known to produce a wide variety of sub-second instabilities that are little understood and which impact safety, efficiency and accuracy.

Visible to the public Securing Smart Grid by Understanding Communicatons Infrastructure Dependencies

Abstract: The presentation will talk about our work on the topic so far. In particular, we will present a new lightweight integrity checking algorithm for smart grid communications that can meet the stringent latency requirements of protection switching. We will also discuss a novel method to detect data falsification attacks on smart meters.
