Distributed Network Control Systems (D-NCS) are a network structure and components that are capable of integrating sensors, actuators, communication, and control algorithms to suit real-time applications. Distributed Networked Control Systems (D-NCS) are vulnerable to various network attacks when the network is not secured, thus, D-NCS must be well protected with security mechanisms (e.g., cryptography), which may adversely affect the dynamic performance of the D-NCS because of limited system resources. This paper is concerned with the problem of designing a secure distributed control methodology that is capable of performing a secure consensus computation in a D-NCS in the presence of misbehaving nodes.
