Cyber Physical Systems Workshop

Cyber physical Systems (CPSs) have become the core components of safety-critical infrastructures such as smart grid, Building Automation Networks (BANs) and water/sewage plants. CPSs bridge the cyber and the physical worlds by integrating computing and communication capabilities.

CPSs are increasingly used by consumers and therefore influence our everyday personal lives. Current and future CPSs are becoming widespread in our homes, automobiles and on our person, and will eventually be a large part of the Internet of Things in which an extensive array of physical devices will be heavily interconnected.

Also, experts in this area agree that CPSs will become the building blocks of future factories. That’s because CPSs represent one of the most significant directions in the development of computer science and ICT in an industrial context. As such, CPSs are systems of collaborating computational entities which are in intensive connection with the surrounding physical world and its on-going processes, providing and using, at the same time, data-accessing and data-processing services available on the internet.

To this end, CPSs are able to:

  • Collect data referred to themselves and their environment
  • Process and evaluate these data
  • Connect and communicate with other systems
  • Initiate actions

On the downside, the complexity of CPSs render them vulnerable. Often, they either lack of security protection, or the corresponding security protocols deployed in such systems are not corresponding with their criticality. Consequently, CPSs have become a ripe target for cyber-attacks.

In an attempt to ameliorate cybersecurity regarding CPSs, recent research has been focused on protecting CPS and IoT devices from different perspectives, mainly using anomaly detection and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), and devising innovative security solutions to improve system resilience, and device-level security management.

One of those security ideas proposes a new control system architecture and learned MAPE-K model (Monitor-Analyze-Plan-Execute over a shared Knowledge) that can gauge and detect any cyber threats targeted at CPSs in Industry 4.0. Such systems would be able to self-predict any threats and protect against unlawful breaches of data and/or control parameters, including spoofed SYN flooding attacks.

Cyber Physical Systems Workshop Course by Tonex

Cyber Physical Systems Workshop, Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), a 3-day workshop on Cyber Physical Systems Security and PrivaCy (CPS-SPC), aims to be the premier workshop  on security of Cyber-Physical Systems such as medical devices, manufacturing and
industrial control, SCADA, robotics, autonomous vehicles, and smart cities. The 3-day workshop tackles security and privacy issues in Cyber Physical Systems.

Workshop Objectives

Attacks infiltrating the integrity of industrial control systems, SCADA, smart grids, autonomous systems, vehicular control systems and medical devices are the key element in securing cyber physical systems.

Participants will learn about the role of principled security-aware design and analysis in the development of both embedded systems and modern engineering systems such as the Smart grid as well as in future systems that use advanced AI and machine learning in safety-critical settings such as autonomous driving.

The goal of this workshop is to cover the security principles, threats, vulnerabilities and mitigation in cyber physical systems.

Topics of interest will include:

  • Overview of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS)
  • CPS domains and security
