Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) consists of a combination of different embedded subsystems, which work independently of each other and also interact with the external environment. Such embedded systems operate in the presence of inherent uncertainty, context dependencies and adversarial certainty arising from both the cyber and physical worlds. Security is one of the key concepts to shield the CPS environment and different embedding devices in order to have a reliable and secure communication platform. There are many security approaches and methods proposed and implemented globally in order to secure CPS, along with areas such as social engineering, security standards, vendor control, as well as access control implementation, etc.
