Workshop on Security Issues in Cyber Physical Systems (SecCPS)
In conjunction with IEEE HASE 2017
January 14, 2017 – Singapore
Local Arrangement Chairs:
|Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) are embedded systems composed of computing elements and physical processes. In the past, CPS were proprietary and not connected to the cyber space; with the advent of networked control systems to enable better operations and monitoring of the physical processes, these systems are increasingly becoming part of cyberspace. Connection to the cyber space enables effective management of public infrastructures such as public transportation, smart grid and water treatment facilities. However, these advantages come with new security challenges.
Attacks on CPS may lead to performance degradation to complete shutdown, or even equipment damage depending on the knowledge, goals and resources of the attacker. Most work in area of CPS security focus on the cyber part and attempts to ensure secure exchange of information across controllers, sensors, and actuators. The nature of security threats and attacks in a CPS is different from those found in pure cyberspace. Threat models have evolved significantly and the fact that any successful attack could be fatal – as it is more than a computer being hacked and disturbs the physical process – may result in dangerous scenarios. It is not only about the consequences of attacks but the fact that besides cyber attacks, attacks on physical devices are also possible: An adversary may add, remove or replace some physical components which may result in severe consequences. Understanding the physical part, and how it can be compromised, is essential to ensure CPS security. Thus focus ought to be on both physical and cyber domains.
SecCPS seeks novel submissions describing practical and theoretical solutions to securing CPS. Submissions may represent any application area for CPS. Hence, papers that are pertinent to the security of embedded systems, Internet of Things, SCADA Systems, Water Systems, Smart-Grid Systems, Critical Infrastructure Networks, Transportation Systems, Medical Devices etc., are welcome.
Example topics of interest are given below, but are not limited to:
Submission Instructions: Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal, and has not been previously published. All submissions must be written in English with a maximum paper length of 6 (six) pages (including text, figures, and references) and formatted according to the two column IEEE conference format. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Digital Library after the conference and included in the IEEE HASE proceedings. Papers must be submitted through EasyChair.
