Cyber Physical Systems Workshop

Many objects in our world are controlled by computers: cars, buildings, manufacturing machines or even musical instruments. In these cases, computers interact directly with the physical world. That is why we call them cyber physical systems (CPS)

Cyber physical systems (CPS) comprise interacting digital, analog, physical, and human components engineered for function through integrated physics and logic.

These systems are receiving a lot of attention now because they provide the foundation of critical infrastructure, form the basis of emerging and future smart services, and improve our quality of life in many areas.

Just as the internet transformed the way people interact with information, cyber physical systems are transforming the way people interact with engineered systems. Cyber physical systems integrate sensing, computation, control and networking into physical objects and infrastructure, connecting them to the internet and to each other.

This technology builds on the discipline of embedded systems, computers and software embedded in devices whose principle mission is not computation, such as cars, toys, medical devices and scientific instruments. CPS integrates the dynamics of the physical processes with those of the software and networking, providing abstractions and modeling, design, and analysis techniques for the integrated whole.

But unlike more traditional embedded systems, a full-fledged CPS is typically designed as a network of interacting elements with physical input and output instead of as standalone devices. The notion is closely tied to concepts of robotics and sensor networks with intelligence mechanisms proper of computational intelligence leading the pathway.

Organizations deploy cyber physical systems in different ways such as monitoring health and well-being of livestock and raising automatic warnings of illnesses or injuries, or monitoring and tracking shipments intelligently for optimal logistics and stock control. They are also used for improving efficiency and safety in homes and offices or supporting elderly people living alone.

Other popular applications include monitoring safety and movements of passengers in a public transport system, or implementing intelligent, efficient production systems and manufacturing lines.

But, just as with the Internet of Things (IoT), CPS also pose security issues. So much so that Homeland Security developed The Cyber Physical Systems Security (CPSSEC) project to address security concerns for cyber physical systems (CPS) as well as internet of things (IoT) devices.

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 grid, 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
