Security of Cyber-Physical Systems (A Case Study).

CS-Colloquium: Prof. Marek Rusinkiewicz

Cyberspace, the ubiquitous collection of interconnected IP networks and hosts, has become the nervous system of the country. Healthy functioning of Cyberspace is essential for the proper operation of numerous critical infrastructures, such as telecommunication, energy and transportation. It is also necessary to support the ever expanding business infrastructure, including commerce and banking. The increasing reliance on Cyberspace has been paralleled by a corresponding increase in the variety, frequency and impact of attacks from a range of assailants. Both commercial companies and government agencies face continuous and increasingly more sophisticated cyber-attacks ranging from data exfiltration and spear phishing to sophisticated worms and logic bombs. The targets include not only computer information systems, but also the network communication infrastructure and power grids.

In this talk, I will discuss protecting cyber-physical systems from attacks, illustrating the issues with a case study of a worm that successfully attacked and sabotaged a supposedly impenetrable industrial control system.
