Autonomous Defenses for Security Attacks in Pervasive CPS Infrastructure
Source: University of Virginia
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) integrate computation with sensing, control, and physical systems and will enable development of next-generation services and smart infrastructure across many application domains. However, a significant impediment to the use of CPS in trusted and trustworthy systems is their vulnerability to security attacks. Some properties of CPS that exacerbate security concerns are intrinsic to the systems, and so cannot be deferred for later reconciliation with an already functional system. Risk of security threats grows with the value and criticality of the assets under control of the CPS.
